The sitting position that will be talked about in this post is called as 'W sitting'. If you know somebody who grew up sitting in this position or any kid around you who sits like that even now, it's something to be concerned about. There are too many health related problems that mark red flags for this condition.
Let's take a look.
Not only does it put a serious strain on our hips, knees and ankles, but it also has dangerous effects on the other systems of our body.
Hence, in order to recruit more of our abdominal and back muscles, we gotta drop that W sitting position.
It brings the child's body in a very tight position that inhibits trunk rotations and movement of the upper body muscles. Basically, compromising on the flexibility of the body.
In the long run, the child will also tend to suffer from leg and back pain.
Other sitting postures like cross leg sitting, side sitting or long sitting can facilitate the activation on core muscles and don't compromise on flexibility as well.
