Child Development (Overview)

Through observations of groups of kids, normative stages have been established for children, i.e. We know the approximate ages that kids begin to sit up, walk, talk, use the potty, and make compromises socially. In referring to these established norms, parents and professionals can see if individual kids are within the expected range of physical and psychological development.

Is there any websites or cartoons that help with child development ? I'm looking for some that help small children learn faster .

No: Babies interact and learn best when they interact with their parents and other people around them. Not multiple media. Involve your baby in your daily activities, keep him around people. Read and sing to him. Take him outside, let him explore with different textures, shapes and colors, encourage explorative behavior. Nothing substitutes the parents! ...Read more

When parents are: Separated, each can control only what goes on in his/her own home. Other than increasing financial support to mom ; child for their own home and nurturing child-care, there is little you can do, unless you observe signs of reportable child abuse or neglect. Chronic parental conflict can cause post-divorce emotional child abuse at any age. Co-parenting classes can help prevent or remediate this. ...Read more

How does being in child care affect a child's development as opposed to having a stay-at-home mom?

How does being in child care affect a child's development as opposed to having a stay-at-home mom?

Day care: Day care has a great effect on the social, learninig & developmental abilities of young children. It also has the negative aspect of being exposed to other sick mates & put them at higher risk for catching infections, but if the child is fully immunized, the risk is less. Some children also suffer from separation anxiety. You have to weigh your options. Best wishes. ...Read more
