Throwing and catching a ball
helped this girl!
I know someone who was very clumsy in her childhood. She had very poor gross motor skills. She broke plates. She was afraid to ride a bicycle.
And that's when her dad started playing ball with her every day. At first, she turned away from the ball, so terrifying was the thought of catching it. Then she started meeting it chest up, still dropping it every time. She got points and cheers every time she managed to catch it, and with time became very confident...
She grew up a slim sporty girl, who goes everywhere by her bike, climbs the trees, and does complicated yoga.
All it took is patience, support, and reward... And training, of course!
