When you let your kids go barefoot, you’re helping to strengthen their feet and improve their balance. Each foot has approximately 7,000 nerve endings that pass information to the rest of the body. Going barefoot allows your child to connect with those receptors. Bare feet also ground us to the Earth, which has been known to reduce stress, inflammation and pain.*
Allow your kids to go barefoot inside and outside, as long as the terrain is safe. Encourage them to notice how their feet feel planted into the ground, and the feel of soft grass or sand beneath their feet.
