My daughter runs funny – doesn’t swing her arms

It is quite comical actually - she is like the woman on Senfield who didn't swing her arms. She will run with her arms straight out and slightly behind her. Whenever I see her I nearly pee my pants. We told her to swing her arms and she would run faster and that only made her running more comical as it is not in the rhythm of her running.

Is this something a four year old out grows or am I subject to a lifetime of laughing?

I wouldn't take her swimming just yet, if I were you.

Since running is a natural action, she'll notice at some time in future that such includes the swinging of the arms. :wink:

I'm not sure this is cause for conern, or not. I've seen troops do this at a double time, but it's really an unnatural move.

I've made up my mind. If it doesn't change in a few months, I'm going to be conerned.

yeah...it's a super girly type of run.

Like in those old technicolor movies where the woman runs across the room into the mans arms. like she flying into his arms.


How is she at throwing an ashtray or candy dish during an argument? they did that alot in old films too.

We don't have any of those (ashtrays or candy dishes), put she is great at throwing almost anything else - especially when the target is her older sister.

Maybe she has learned from the wrong examples, do you have any uppity relatives that don't lower themselves to swinging thir arms while running to their mercedes?

so...after she throws something at her sister, does she kind of collapse with her face in her hands, and shriek "Don't LOOK at me! I'm a Monster!"

linkat....sorry to tell you this, but your 4 year old daughter is a gay man.

Linkat - yeah, it's probably a phase. Like some have said, it's a girl run. She probably saw it on tv.

gus...do me a favor and go over to that thread where that kid is trying to figure out how to shrink a cotton T-shirt.

Say something useful like "oh for the love of Mike"

that was pretty funny.

May not be so bad - she will probably like shopping and have good taste.

Are all four year-old girls gay men? Am I in for it?
