Last week I was walking in an area where a lot of parents were pushing their children in carriages (prams) and strollers (pushchairs). I noticed that most of the carriages face the parent and most of the strollers face away from the parent (known as forward-facing so that the child and parent are both facing forward).
I was curious about the impact of stroller direction on children and asked God. Here is the information that God gave me:
Children are most content when they see their parent or beloved caregiver. Strangers’ faces and quickly changing scenery overwhelm them, which can affect their sense of security and their stamina. Until the age of two, all children are more secure with themselves when they can see the person pushing the stroller. From the age of two, sensitive children are more secure facing the person pushing the stroller. Forward-facing strollers can be used when children are less sensitive and are open to change.
When choosing a stroller, please consider the spiritual wisdom we have received. It is in the interest of children’s health and balance.
