Development of children: Importance

Development of children: The early years of your child’s life are important to his or her health and development. They shape your child’s physical, mental and psychological state as an adult.

Healthy development ensures that your child is able to get his or her social, emotional and educational needs.

Growing up in a home where your child feels safe, wanted and loved is essential.

A warm cohesive family where you as parents spend quality time with your children goes a long way to help healthy development.

Development of children: Environmental factors

Proper nutrition, exercise, and rest also can make a big difference. In today’s age children are often sitting in front of the television with no interaction with parents, whether or not you are together.

Verbal interaction at all ages is fundamental to cognitive development. Babies need to be talked to. Research has shown that the greater the number of words you say to your baby in his or her first year is directly related to their language and cognitive development even at age 7 years.

A warm and loving atmosphere in the family helps healthy development. This does not necessarily mean pampering or letting children do whatever they want. Children do need boundaries.

However, use of sarcasm put downs and shouting to get kids to behave can cause unnecessary harm to the child.

Positive reinforcement planned to ignore and clear boundaries help you teach your child to behave.

Permitting your child to participate in family discussions, respecting their opinions and allowing them to make mistakes is important.

Development of children: Milestones

The principle that making mistakes is a way of learning help to protect your child’s self-esteem is false. Mistakes are an important tool and developmental milestones are things most children can do by a certain age, like:

  • Taking the first step
  • Smiling for the first time
  • Waving “bye-bye”
  • Symbolic play
  • Learning
  • Speech
  • Behavior
  • Movement (Walking, crawling, pencil grip etc.)

These milestones offer important clues about your child’s development. Children develop at their own pace, so it’s impossible to tell exactly when a child will learn a given skill. However, the developmental milestones give a general idea of the changes to expect as a child gets older.

Every child develops differently. Infants who start walking at the age of 8 months up to 14 months can still be considered normal. This is true of other areas of development as well like language, fine motor coordination, and social behavior.

Executive functions like organization and self-regulation can also occur at different times.

It is important to know your child and help him or her as needed.

Development of children: Monitoring

A child’s growth and development should be monitored with the help of a healthcare professional. However, parents are essential in this process.

Monitoring healthy development means not only paying attention to symptoms related to your child’s condition, but also to your child’s physical, mental, social, and emotional well-being.

If your child has a developmental delay, it is important to get help as soon as possible. Early intervention is the key. If you are worried about any area of the child’s development it is essential to get help early on.

The idea of waiting and watching can be disastrous for your child. Do not wait but seek appropriate assessment and help.

Regular development checks in all children should be done at 9, 18, 24 and 30 months. Nonetheless, if you have any doubts you should act quickly and at any age.
