This is done if a child is completely safe, but simply refuses to go normally for any reason and chooses to walk on his toes. This is because they can't get rid of tight calf muscles or a simple habit. This disorder affects between 5% and 12% of healthy kids. However, it is important to note that certain people continue to do this for fun, on and off.
