Why sitting in W position is harmful?
W position puts the child’s spine in a curved position which can cause them back problem in the future. This position stresses the hip abductors, hamstrings, internal rotators, and the heel cords. This can cause many postural or stability related implications.
W position is detrimental to a child as sitting in this position can incline a child to hip dislocation. This position ought to be avoided.

Sitting in other position help in the development of more desirable movement patterns. W sitting discourage a child from developing a hand preference. Since no trunk rotation is possible with W-sitting position, the child will pick up objects on the right with his right hand and vice versa.
How to prevent W-sitting?
Children are quick to adopt any practice as a habit. Before they turn this into a habit, teach them alternative ways to sit. While they are playing, sit with them and adjust their legs in some other positions. It will be harder for them to again go that same position.

If the child is finding it difficult to sit with any other postion than the W postion, then consult a therapist about it.
Parents should  pay attention to their daily movements and positions. We want our kids to stay healthy and this stage is the most crucial part of their life.This is when they make turn anything into their habit. So before they turn this postion into a habit, teach them the alternative ways.
