Early Child Development & Care
by Contributing Writer
Early childhood is one of the most important stages of growth and development in life. What they learn at this stage begins from the day they are born until they are about eight years old.
During these most vulnerable years, it is important to help the child develop social skills. These skills consist of helping your child learn how to share, communicate, and play with others, according to communitygateway.org.
Your child will begin to develop motor skills. At first these motor skills will pertain to lifting their head, rolling over, and walking; which are called large or gross motor skills to transferring items from hand to hand, cutting, and coloring which are called fine motor skills, according to sensory-processing-disorder.com.
Increase their vocabulary through reading and developing communication skills will help your child become more intellectual, according to kidsdevelopment.co.uk.
Exposing your child to music, art, and reading will help your child become more creative, according to creativityinstitute.com.
This skill can be taught by teaching your child how to cope with their feelings, become self- aware, and have self-confidence within themselves, according to kidsdevelopment.com.
