Q.

2 year old boy

My 2 and a half year old boy has always reached all milestones early/ontime. He can kick a ball, jump, climb stairs, etc.
I have however noticed that he does not want to climb on jungle gyms, climb on stuff in general. I don' t know if I should be concerned, if it might be that he has a fear of heights?
Your thoughts please ?

If your son has always reached his milestones normally and is fit and normally active then there should be no need for concern. He seems to be a healthy and happy little boy who is just a bit nervous about climbing on a jungle gym.
