Current situation of children’s mental health
On October 19, 2021, the American Academy of Pediatrics together with the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and the Children’s Hospital Association issued a joint statement declaring a state of mental health emergency on children around the United States. The president of the AAP expressed hope that more action would be taken quickly at all levels of government to address this mental health crisis. As the epidemic continues, American children and adolescents face isolation, prolonged uncertainty, and fear and grief for unspecified periods of time, which has brought a very serious psychological impact on them. According to the AAP, the number of self-mutilation and suicide cases of children aged 5 to 17 increased by 45% in the first half of 2021 compared with the same period in 2019. Therefore, it is high time to pay much attention to the mental health of children.
The significance of trampoline for the growth of children
Why do active children like trampolining?
After birth, the children enter a life stage with continuous movement in which they need to carry out a lot of activities or sports to solve their own problems of individual development. For them, this is a kind of method of living and learning while exploring the unknown world. At that time children’s high energy is also one of their greatest characteristics.
Therefore, children’s active behavior is not a big problem, but a normal state, and how to make the combination of movement and stillness on kids is something that parents are supposed to consider. Because “the combination of movement and stillness” helps children grow up in physical health, i.e. sleeping and exercising. The secretion of growth hormone in human sleep is about three times that in awake state, so getting enough sleep is good for children’s growth. Though Exercise can also stimulate growth hormone secretion, 20 minutes of exercise, such as bouncing, rope skipping, running, high jumping, long jumping, etc., can generally make the amount of growth hormone reach a peak in the body of a normal child.
Why do autistic children like trampolining?
In a variety of clinical research, it is found that if a child jumps and claps, it is a positive sign that the child is feeling happy about something and producing positive emotions, which is related to the structure of the basal ganglia in the brain. If a normal person hits the jackpot, he will also jump up from the couch and clap his hands, which shows the unique function of the basal ganglia.
So why does this happen so frequently in children with autism? Because children with autism do not have as much control over their basal ganglia as common people do. A very small and simple thing can make them very happy and express positive feelings, which is called self-stimulation. It contains more of their emotions and developments. That is, their visual, tactile, and auditory senses are more sensitive and the basal ganglia cannot suppress certain emotions. In simple words, the autistic children’s basal ganglia are inactive, and it is inactivity that causes the inability to control emotions. However, trampolining can just help them consume and relieve such emotions.
Five benefits of trampoline jumping for children
Trampoline jumping can exercise children’s limbs and increase muscle strength. A series of conditioned reflex training on the trampoline enables children to establish contact in the brain center through these tactile stimuli and muscle training, which can make their movements sensitive and muscles developed.
Trampoline jumping can promote children’s cardiopulmonary function, accelerate blood circulation, strengthen metabolism and develop cardiac contractility. In trampolining, children enhance the function of respiratory organs and keep away from common respiratory diseases.
Trampoline jumping can promote children’s gastrointestinal peristalsis, enhance gastrointestinal digestion, increase appetite, complete nutrient absorption, and make children develop better. Children who are anorexic and resistant to food need more exercise.
Trampoline jumping can promote the development of nervous system. Various rhythmic movements on trampolines can make children gradually form purposeful and coordinated movements from disorderly movements, which is a good regulation of the nervous system.
Trampoline jumping can prevent disease. As we all know, when children play on outdoor trampolines, they are also bathed in sunlight, air and water. They gradually withstand the stimulation of changes in the external environment, and their skin and respiratory mucosa are constantly exercised to enhance tolerance.
Where can you find trampolines?
At the Olympics
Trampoline is a competitive sport in which athletes utilize the bounce of the trampoline to perform acrobatics in the air. It belongs to a kind of gymnastics, known as “aerial ballet”. Modern trampoline originated in France and later became popular in the United States. In 1947, Texas held the first national trampoline show. A year later, trampoline became an official event. In 1964, the International Trampoline Federation was established in Switzerland, and the first World Trampoline Championship was held in the same year. Later, trampoline was listed as an event at the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games.

Prepare a big surprise for your kids!
Reasonable, moderate and scientific physical exercise plays a vital role in children’s development. It can not only strengthen the body, but also cultivate strong will and strong character. Long-term physical exercise will benefit children’s physical and mental development. But for children, the fun of doing sports is the most important thing. For example, running is too boring for them. It is impossible for them to run for half an hour or even an hour at a time like adults. They will definitely stop in five minutes at most. Unlike running, trampolining is very interesting for kids. On the trampoline, they can’t stop for less than half an hour and you can also join them and play with them. Hence a trampoline can not only help children get enough exercise, but also enhance parent-child relationship.
