Get into the Swing of Swinging.

Swing setMost kids love the swings, even if it’s just getting into the bucket seat or graduating to the banana seat.  Getting kids to learn how to swing themselves can be a bit tricky and frustrating.  Here is a tip to get them going.  Once you get your child swinging, kneel in front of them with your arms extended outward and your palms toward the child.  Ask them to touch your hands with their feet.  When they do, give them a good push backwards, emphasizing bend legs as the verbal cue.  This will help to reinforce that bent knee position.  As they come towards you, legs out or touch my hands are good verbal cues to get that fun push backwards.
