Child Growth and Development Tips
Every day becomes joyful when you watch your child discover the world and their place in it. As they grow and change, they’re better able to understand things that are happening around them. Because of this, the years of early childhood are crucial for a child’s growth and development in all aspects of life. Whether it’s physical, mental or emotional, you can see their progress with every little developmental milestone they achieve. All these areas of progress are interlinked and depend on each other for the holistic growth of your child.
What kinds of milestones can I expect during my child’s growth and development?
While every child’s growth and developmental pace is different, there are some general milestones that you can observe in physical, emotional, cognitive, behavioural and social areas of your child’s life at every age. Saying his first words to communicating in full sentences, from walking with support to running, hopping and jumping, learning, and sharing with other kids are some of the milestones you can expect in the first five years of your child.
How can I as a parent support my child’s growth and development?
Parent, you can support their progress through the following ways:
- While sleep patterns may be different for different ages, ensure your child is getting an average of 10-12 hours of sleep every night.
- Macro-nutrients (vitamins and minerals) and micro-nutrients (fats, proteins, and carbohydrates) are substances that are required for the proper functioning of one’s body. A balanced diet that is a healthy mix of both will help your child reach their full potential.
- Encourage your child to have dedicated time for physical activity to help them be healthy and discourage childhood obesity.
