Climbing Opportunities During Childhood

Jan 19, 2008
A child will come across many opportunities to enjoy climbing and parents will not approve of most of them. If the child grows up on a farm, it is quite possible that the child will be seen climbing trees at the age of five. The height of the tree will not be important to the child but to a parent, the tree might seem like a injury waiting to happen. When there are small children in the home, it is only natural for a parent to keep a watchful eye out for them whether they are inside the home or outside.

Some parents have to take a wait and see attitude and let the child test his climbing abilities without interruption because interruptions are what cause the child to fall without warning. No parent wants to see a child get hurt, but they must also realize that the child must use their own methods to test their abilities as they grow. Climbing is one way that children use to explore new things and learn about nature and the world around them.

It's only natural for the parent to accept a child's admission to climbing a rock wall when they are an adult because by that time, the parent will have become fully accustomed to the fact that the child likes to do it. On any given day of their childhood, the parent could expect to find the child climbing the water tower or climbing out a bedroom window to sit on the roof for a while. By the time the child is in their teens, they have perfected the art of climbing anything on the farm.

Some children will become interested in climbing after they see a circus for the first time. The high flight acrobats on the flying trapeze will capture their attention and by the end of the week, boys will create their own circus in the woods behind the house and eventually invite family members to see their first performance. Parents might have to suck in a quick breath when they realize their child climbed a tree and is now swinging without a safety net.

A child might borrow a belt from their Father to use as a safety device for some climbing that will be shared with the boy next door. Some evenings, the Mother might pass by the bedroom and find that their child has climbed out the window and established a life line between one house and another. The child will feel quite confident about climbing a trellis that is growing on the side of the house too.

Even children that live in large cities have the opportunity to climb at an early age. It is not uncommon for children to exit buildings by climbing out the window and lowering steps that will take the climber directly to the street. They will see window washers on high-rise buildings and make a mental note that they are wearing safety equipment and standing on boards that allow very little space for their feet.
