Therefore, the parents must move the stuff up so high that the kids won't even bother trying to reach the stuff. Also, remove any means by which the kids could climb up (climbing can be dangerous when a child falls). ...Read more

I have microcephaley but my head CM 52cm what is the age range. Ie how small/ big to child please ?

Don't understand ???: Not sure how you were diagnosed with "microcephaly" at 33 yrs of age. 52 cm is smaller than "average", but still falls within 2 standard deviations of average (which means it's essentially normal). You also have to correlate it with your adult height to figure out where you fall on the percentile curves. If this doesn't help please try and rephrase your question a little more clearly. ...Read more
