Stop Throwing So Slowly
You’re throwing a ball for a toddler to smack with a plastic bat. You toss it gently, slowly, to make it easier. He just can’t hit it. A study says that’s because you throw too slowly — and kids’ brains aren’t wired for slow motion. Researchers say slow balls actually appear stationary to a child. Add a little speed to the pitch and the child is able to judge its speed more accurately.
