Potentially poor posture in 9 year old


I've noticed that my 9 year old daughter may be developing poor posture (mine's not great, but I'm working on it).  She is involved in soccer and running and she takes a weekly yoga class through her school.  Other than nagging at her to sit up straight, I'm wondering whether anyone has any suggestions?

Your daughter may have scoliosis. Suggest you ask her pediatrician to check. She may need to see pediatric orthopedic spine surgeon,not necessarily for surgery but for an opinion.

Not a mother myself, but my parents taught me good posture by sending me to ballet training twice a week throughout childhood, which really helped.
