Child Development is the term used to describe the changes in your child’s physical growth, as well as his/her ability to learn the social, emotional, behavioral, thinking and communication skills a child needs for life. All of these areas are linked, and each depends on and influences the others. Child development is the gradual development of a child from dependency to autonomy. As children develop from infants to teens and finally adults, they go through a series of developmental stages that are important to all aspects of their personality including physical, intellectual, emotional and social.
It is one of the utmost responsibilities of parents and caregivers to oversee a healthy development in their child. Parents and caregivers should make sure that children are healthy and safe, equip them with the skills and resources needed to succeed as adults, and transmit basic cultural values to them. They should also mould their attitude according to the child’s age and needs. Every child grows to be an exclusive individual. Every child displays a different character and does things differently. Children may also have health concerns, safety issues, or problems with nutrition, self-esteem, education, and socialization. Parents and caregivers should offer their children love, acceptance, appreciation, encouragement, and guidance. They should also offer intimate context for nurturing and protection of children as they develop their personalities and identities and also as they mature physically, cognitively, emotionally, and socially.
