By recognising the developmental patterns of early childhood, parents can help provide guidance and activities suitable for their children and ease their transition from one stage to the next.
It is important that at each stage parents do their best to meet the needs of their developing child.
With encouragement, praise and a bit more patience, parents can develop a strong and meaningful relationship with their child, laying the foundations of understanding early, from toddlerhood to pre-school age.
Although no two children are exactly alike (mine are almost like North and South Poles) definite development patterns can be observed in young children aged two to six years. These patterns was what I observed during my 3 years of helping out in a YWCA Child Care Centre when I was in my teens. I will broadly outlined the patterns here to help parents understand the age-group characteristics and be more effective in their parenting over the week. So doesn’t seem like too much to read for a start.
My child is 14 months old. However, she does not respond when she is told to wave her hands (or bid 'bye' to others). She responds to everything else and follows instructions instantly, but remains silent when told to wave her hand or say bye
different children have different personality. I have a niece who refused to wave or say 'byebye' till she was almost 3. Later, we found out that she does not like the feeling of separation. So before she said her first 'byebye' and waved, we exchanged 'high-fives' instead. *smile*
Although no two accouchement are absolutely akin (mine are about like North and South Poles) audible development patterns can be empiric in adolescent accouchement age-old two to six years. These patterns was what I empiric during my 3 years of allowance out in a YWCA Child Care Centre if I was in my teens |
