Is rock climbing safe?

Is rock climbing safe?

It is for the rock!!: Seriously, I would not recommend it for an adult with ankle or wrist problems, extremity weakness, or general balance or health challenges. If one walks or climbs on challenging and uneven terrain, it is essential that he or she be in good health and excellent condition.

Not likely: Having busy, active babies is a great thing. Depending on the age of the child and how she was delivered, the pains are not likely to be from the climbing or kicking. Stress of having an infant along with routine daily life can cause pain from acid reflux or stomach irritation. Healing the belly after delivery can cause discomfort for a little while as well. Talk to your doctor about it. ...Read more

How to deal with baby 10m who insist to climb the coach when I say no firmly he still repeat the same action how to change his behavoir? How raise obey

When you say: In a low, firm, calm voice, remove him from the couch from behind. Take him to a play area & engage him in a different activity. Spend an afternoon redirecting him till he " gets it." Negative or positive attention reinforces a behavior. Raising your voice, scolding or appearing upset will reinforce his couch-climbing. Ignoring a behavior by using time-out works from 18 mos. To 10 years. ...Read more

Please elaborate on what is considered shortness ofbreath? E.g if I walk for 20minutes and then climb 5 flights of stairs is it "ok" to feel breathless

Depends: On your baseline fitness level. If this is unusual activity for you, then it is perfectly natural to feel breathless after this much activity. On the other hand, if you do this every day, and now all of a sudden you are starting to have trouble breathing, it could indicate an issue. In that case, see your doctor. Hope this helps! ...Read more
