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. ...Read more

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/ ...Read more

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

Can you tell me how the birth of a child affect the parents life style and goals?

Can you tell me how the birth of a child affect the parents life style and goals?

Life-changer: Very interesting question that can take a whole book to answer. Children are the best gift life has to offer, they need both parents to be healthy, loved and available physically and emotionally. Most of the dysfunction we see in the USA is due to poor family communication and unhealthy dynamics. Children change life styles and goal priorities in many positive ways. make them a priority, worth it ...Read more

What genetic diseases most commonly occur in a child born from incest (between sibs or between parent & child)?

What genetic diseases most commonly occur in a child born from incest (between sibs or between parent & child)?

Varies considerably: The issue is like playing russian roulette. All of us carry recessive genes in our dna that do not express disease because they are balanced by normal genes. Things like cystic fibrosis are carried by 1/20, sickle cell 1/12. All of us carry an estimated 4 defects. Parent child/sib-sib pairings all may have a normal outcome or a bad outcome for any pregnancy. ...Read more

What kind of care should parents provide to their child with single ventriuclar heart? Between the fonton stages and after fonton rpocedure is done ?

Depends on the child: The questions to ask the child life people at the pediatric cardiology department, the surgeon, and the cardiologist, are "what are the restrictions for the child after recovering from surgery", and "how can a parent tell if the child is doing too much activity". They can confirm when and what prophylactic antibiotics are needed. It's a good idea to get vaccinated and avoid sick people with colds. ...Read more

If two parents have a gap between their front teeth, would their child have a gap too?

If two parents have a gap between their front teeth, would their child have a gap too?

Depends: Remember child inheriting genes from 2 parents, 4 grandparents, 16 great grandparents, etc. Add to that environmental concerns, such as digit habits, and it's quite a complex situation. However, the probability is fairly high, so expect to take your child for their 1st orthodontic check-up at age 7. ...Read more
