Why We LOVE Our Indoor Swings


You guys. Sensory swings have changed our lives.

Swinging is calming, and it develops:

  • Gross & fine motor skills
  • Balance
  • Confidence
  • Perceptual skills
  • Core strength
  • Spatial awareness
  • Focus

And swinging supports the orientation schema (if you haven’t heard of schemas in early childhood, check out my YouTube video “Schemas in Early Childhood“) and the vestibular system.

Whenever my kids are moody, they jump right on the swing and get some of their energy moving. We have a hook-up in their bedroom too, so if they both want to swing they can each grab one.

We were lucky enough to receive some hand-me-down sensory swings from a family member. They’re from FUN and FUNCTION, an occupational therapy products company for toys and tools for kids with special needs. The quality is unbeatable and it’s a great company.

My favorite swing is the Raindrop Swing by Fun & Function* (Comes with a 360° Swivel).

*Use code JunkieLove for 15% OFF any swing! I am an affiliate and receive a small commission if you purchase at Fun & Function using these links and my code – so thank you! 

I’ve received so many questions that I actually compiled all my answers into this handy PDF guide – click the button to download it for my recommendations and installation advice. 

If you want to get a similar effect with less investment check out this cocoon swing, I honestly feel the quality of Fun And Function’s raindrop swing is worth the investment if you can swing it (sorry!) – we’ve had it for over 5 years of rough use and it looks brand new. 

Here are some other swings that get a lot of use in our home:

When you hang up your swing, a few things to consider:
    1. Make sure there’s a large circumference of space around the swing, these swings move in 360-degree motion, not just forward and back.
    2. Decide where you’re storing the swing so that you don’t end up cluttering your space.
    3. Please take any safety precautions you see necessary, such as placing a mat under the swings or having your child wear a helmet (we don’t) if you think that’s appropriate. Again, I also recommend hooking up any swing with a 360-degree swivel so the swing maintains its proper shape. 

Are you going to do this? I highly recommend it! I would love to see your indoor swings! Use @parentingjunkie on Instagram to show me yours!

Now look, we’re all tired of the over-inflated results that course creators are flaunting on the interwebs. We’re all suspicious of online courses actually delivering on all their bloated promises. So if you think, “Bah, just another expensive course I don’t need” - I feel you, I do. I take the same wary approach when buying new programs. ⁣

But that’s why I want to share real human beings from all walks of life who have actually been through this course and received meaningful and priceless renewals in their relationships. ⁣

Like Chelsea, who remarked: “When I joined Parent in Love, I was ready to give up on my marriage. Today, my marriage has had a complete overhaul! It's practically a different marriage altogether.”⁣

Or Tanya, who reported: "This course has ABSOLUTELY TRANSFORMED our marriage, our family life, and my own personal growth journey! We still fight, but the fights are fewer and we tend to make up quicker and in front of the kids now!"⁣

And here's what Jonna said: "I have tools that give me hope and I know how to start resolving our conflicts. I have started to notice how my own shift of thoughts changes the whole atmosphere in our home, not only between me and my hubby but with the kids also."⁣

Parent In Love is a 6-month deep-dive online program that will transform your marriage from the inside out. ⁣

Ever find yourself waiting for your partner to change? Sometimes, it feels easier alone. ⁣

As much as you want and need the support - I know sometimes it can just feel easier to run your home on your own. ⁣

No one criticizing. ⁣
No one judging. ⁣
No one commenting. ⁣
No one watching. ⁣
No one adding to your to-do list with their needs.⁣
No one irritating you.⁣

Ah. Bliss. ⁣

But did you ever have these thoughts only to then think: "Yikes! That's not really what I want, is it? What's wrong with me? What's wrong with us!?"⁣

And what has waiting for your partner to change gotten you so far? ⁣

Stop waiting... ⁣

You deserve to have a happy marriage, and your kids deserve to have happy parents. ⁣

And don't wait on your partner, because the Parent In Love program is DESIGNED to be done alone - so that YOU can focus on what YOU can change: yourself.⁣

Your partner will necessarily be affected by the changes you make - because that's how relationships work, we're intertwined like that. ⁣

So TAKE A BREAK trying to change your partner right now, and finally, start to see some real transformation. ⁣

Psst... Your partner doesn't even have to KNOW you're doing the program - not that I'm suggesting you hide this from them, especially if you two are used to discussing financial investments you make - but I DO want you to know that many members have gone through Parent In Love WITHOUT letting their partners know about it. ⁣

And what happened? ⁣

Well, typically their partner would suddenly begin to NOTICE a profound (wonderful!) shift in their relationship and wonder "what's going on?!" ⁣

If you really want to take this program but you're struggling to work through their concerns, especially about the $ investment, I've provided scripts to help you have those important conversations with confidence. ⁣

  1. Most of the swings you linked say for outdoor swing set or tree use and require too hooks. Do you still use these inside? Like the board one in your video?
