3. Wear the proper shoes for your sport. If your child is playing soccer, they should not be wearing a shoe made for playing tennis.
4. Make sure your shoes fit! Measure feet every time you shop (especially in children as their feet grow quickly) and try shoes on. The shoe size is more of a guideline than a rule.
5. Don't walk barefoot in public places, like the pool or locker room, to avoid getting fungal infections.
6. Don't ignore foot pain. Foot pain is not normal! If your child is experiencing foot pain he or she should see a podiatrist.
