What is the definition or description of: child development?

Established norms: 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.

How is child development impacted by having a stay-at-home mom as opposed to a working mom?

How is child development impacted by having a stay-at-home mom as opposed to a working mom?

Complicated: In the early months/years family care will give the child more individual attention. Older toddlers/children can benefit from the social stimulation of daycare. The decision has to be what's best for your family emotional/economically. First two sons home cared by father - second set daycare and I see no difference in their development. Be sure to research a daycare facility thoroughly. Http://www. Livestrong. Com/article/72423-daycare-vs.-stay-home-parent/

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

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!

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.

My wife is pregenent and she is carring 6 month baby, her lab result is HBsAG positive. Sample value 2.875 and cutoff. 131, are they both in danger?

My wife is pregenent and she is carring 6 month baby, her lab result is HBsAG positive. Sample value 2.875 and cutoff. 131, are they both in danger?

Follow up is vital.: With those lab tests, there would be an increased risk of passing hepatitis b to the baby at birth. Using the Hepatitis B Vaccine and hepatitis b immune globulin, this risk can be greatly decreased. It is very important that your wife's doctors are aware of the hepatitis b results.

What will affect the motor development of the child?

What will affect the motor development of the child?

Many things: Motor development is a complex series of gains in coordination and strength. In infants, lack of tummy-time can lead to late crawling due to weaker upper bodies. Other things affecting strength, such as weakness related to illness or genetic problems, can delay skills. Practice makes perfect (or close enough), so the best way to help motor development is to encourage new efforts!

What factors influence child growth and development?

What factors influence child growth and development?

Genetic, epigenetic,: Biological & environmental factors interact to determine developmental trajectory. Translational research, the study of how the latter 2 factors trigger physical & behavioral expression of both normal & altered genes, may reveal ways to modify pre- & post-natal environmental & physical factors for all babies' optimal development, as whole genome testing will soon be affordable for clinical use.

How does nature affect a child's growth and development?

How does nature affect a child's growth and development?

Nature vs nurture: A child's growth and development begins at birth. Nature dictates stages and changes in development in physical, social, behavioral, and emotional areas. Gross motor skills precede fine motor skills (e.g.crawling before walking), isolated play precedes co active and cooperative play, babbling precedes word formation, and self-focus precedes recognition of others opinions all leading to adulthood.

What is the normal language development trajectory for a child?

What is the normal language development trajectory for a child?

Upwards!: There will sometimes be little false starts, or sometimes a small step backwards as children learn new developmental skills, including language. But the overall trajectory should be up and up. Any significant, sustained regression in any developmental area (that is, a big step backwards) should raise concern and prompt a medical evaluation.
