At What Age Can Children Start Doing Simple Puzzles
1-2 years: Most babies can start with simple shape sorters before their first birthday. Simple puzzles with basic shapes can be done as early as 1-2 years, and watching your child advance to more complicated puzzles can be very rewarding. Some children master this early on, others take longer. If you have any concerns about her development, speak to your pediatrician. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Controversial: Fetuses can recognize maternal voices (see kisilevsky, '03), but more complicated and verbally based memories probably do not develop until at least 3 or 4. Other emotional memories may well develop before age 3 that have to do with a sense of security/safety. Major problem is that it is hard to confirm adult reports of early childhood memories that are uncontaminated by later discussion. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends on Dx: Depending on the diagnosis of your child's individual problem, a qualified orthodontic specialist will present a rx-plan individualized to your child's needs. Take your child for 1st orthodontic exam as a 7th birthday present. Listen carefully to what the orthodontist tells you, and make an informed decision. 2 classmates, best friends, 1 is ready for rx at 10, the other not until 13. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Depends: The aap & sports medicine groups encourage a delay in power lifting/heavy lifting until skeletal maturity. This varies with each kid & generally equates to final height & pubertal stage. Lifting technique and exercises with lower weight loads can be started earlier under the supervision of trained coaches. Such limitations are meant to reduce the rate of injury in each age group. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Around 7-8 years: There is no perfectly safe age to take a bath alone in a tub, but kids under 4 yrs are at higher risk of drowning. Statistics from a few years ago show that 70-80 kids drown in bathtubs in the U.S. Each year. To be safest, wait until a child has good behavior, some common sense, plus the ability to easily get in and out of a full bathtub before thinking of leaving him alone. Otherwise, watch him! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Whenever they can!: PE time has been eroded from many public schools and it's a real shame! Being physically active and engaging in creative play is beneficial to a child. I believe all children should have structured quality recess/PE appropriate for their age. It actually helps them be better students! http://www.webmd.com/parenting/raising-fit-kids/move/parents-pe-questions?page=1 ...Read more
No simple answer: Solid research tells us that children as young as 4 years old can safely engage in weightlifting. The problem is that kids do not get proper supervision and tend to compete with each other to see who can lift more weight. These practices are unsafe. Pick up the book, youth strength training: programs for health, fitness and sport by faigenbaum and westcott. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Varies: I don't think there is an exact answer. The child would need to be able to manipulate the pieces. I think by 18 months, most children could do some easy shapes with help. Younger children might be able to do them and then some 2 year olds might have frustration with them. So try them and if they are too frustrating, then wait about 6 months and try again. ...Read more
Track food intake: There are many: i highly recommend writing down everything you eat. Start by focusing on a healthy breakfast to set each day on the right track. Set a goal of losing 5% of your body weight to improve your health. Get my physical activity (decide to park further away, take the stairs, walk around the block). Focus on 1 step at at time and stick with it as you add more steps. ...Read more
Be practical: If they stink from their underarms they need it. The adrenal glands that are part of this process can begin to show apocrine gland odor as early as age 6 in some. This is a separate system from that driving puberty, but both systems eventually function together. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
At what age does a child begin or should a child start to understand right from wrong? At some age they are old enough to know better bad from good.
Piaget & Kohlberg : are worth your researching. From behaviors modeled by parents & parental discipline (teaching) style, 18-mo.-5 yr. old kids begin to understand adult rules based on rewards for "good" & unpleasant consequences for "bad" behavior. From 5-10 yrs. kids think of what's right & fair as immutable, adult-made rules. From 10-12 yrs., children "get" that what's " right" may change with the situation. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Truth is, any age.: Lifting light weights is OK at any age, provided that the amount of weight is appropriate for the person lifting it. Where people get in trouble is trying to lift too much, too fast. For a healthy physique, one does NOT need to lift the heaviest weights possible. Start with light weights, and SLOWLY work up. Children don't gain much muscle mass until pubertal testosterone kicks in. Go easy. ...Read more
