Falling to Your Doom? Careful Not to Pull a Trapezius.

The last thing we here at Stuff Kids Write want is for you, one of our terrific and loyal readers, to get injured while perusing a post. So if you’d please, follow along for some light stretching of the neck muscles.

First, chin to chest. Breathe in through the nose, out through the mouth. Hold it for a ten count. Beautiful.

Okay, now drape a tea towel over the back of your head, and using gentle resistance, pull your chin from your chest. Nice and easy. Don’t overdo it. That breathing is terrific. Well done.

Lastly, a couple of shoulder rolls. Five to the front. Wonderful. Now five to the back. Again, in through the nose, out through the mouth. Magnificent.

Are we limbered up?

Good. Now you can safely punk out to these lyrics co-written by AS, age 7, and MS, age 10.

So, we all feel better, right? And you didn’t pull anything? Everyone’s necks are okay?

Splendid. Now go jump off a cliff.

Oya. La. La.
