Has anyone ever seen the study that says if an infant doesn't crawl for long or at all they will have reading problems. My MIL says all the time that shes worried that if my son doesn't crawl for long he won't read . I simply do not believe this at all. I crawled for a month and then was walking and I am an amazing reader. Anybody have any proof or can show me the studies or is she just crazy like I think?Answer Question

There's no connection between not crawling and being a poor reader! I never crawled but, instead, went right to "cruising" (walking while holding onto furniture) at nine months before I walked and have no problems with reading. Also, one of my siblings who did crawl does have problems reading (hates it and does poorly at it)!
