We love to see kids increase their gymnastics skills under the watchful eyes of trainers and spotters. But some kids who learn skills in the gym become reckless outdoors and do dangerous things. The opening scene of this video shows a highly dangerous act that could have resulted in serious injury or death.
Be sure that you talk often with your kids about doing gymnastics safely and not showing off skills in a dangerous manner. Let them know that reckless behavior using gymnastics skills is not acceptable and will have consequences. Parents and gymnastics teachers must emphasize safety!
