 I'm thinking about putting my 2.5 almost 3yo in gymnastics to help get some of his engery out. What do you think? I'm ok with a boy doing gymnastics, but have any of you put yours in it?

I'm thinking about it with my youngest son. He's 3.5, but he loves to do flips. He also has a ton of energy.

My 4.5 year old son and 3 year old daughter are both in it and have been for a year. They both love it and I think it is really good for both of them.

Do it. If he does other sports the flexibility will be a benefit.

I think it's perfectly fine for boys to do gymnastics! I say go for it!

My son is 5 and he started in November. He loves it. Gymnasts are super strong and agile. Nothing a boy can't do

I say go for it. There was one boy in my grade/class who was into it for a LONG time and he would do talent shows with gymnastics at school, show off all that he could do from a little age. I always thought it was cool. You might look into building his self esteem while doing it though, some kids might make fun of him. Not now, but once he's in school. :)

ENJOY!

I won't put boy or girl in gymnastics. It pounds their bones so much that they just don't grow.
