Early childhood development is the foundation to everyone's life. Nevertheless, each child has their own personalities and ways about them as well as similarities such as meeting developmental milestones in a relatively similar time in their lives from talking to walking.

Doctors tell parents not to compare their child with other children according to their early childhood development. One child might start walking at nine months and one might be 14 months. Both could be healthy yet have their own time schedule. Often children are around a year old when they are walking or at least starting to walk.

Taking notice of early childhood development is important though. If a child continues to miss milestones and aren't meeting early childhood...

You may need a center where you can drop off your children early in the morning and pick them in the evening, or you may just need the day care services for a few hours per day. It may even be that you only need the day care center occasionally when you have something you need to attend to. Whatever your needs are, the day care center you choose should provide you with quality care for your children.

Childhood obesity refers to children and adolescents from 6 to 17 years of age who are extremely overweight based on standard growth charts. Currently, statistics show that twelve percent of American parents consider their child obese. This is a rather startling fact that should be given more interest and notice by the public. Parents should be a lot more concerned about their child’s weight and their eating habits. Early detection and intervention would greatly help on battling with obesity.

Obesity among children and adolescents is a very serious issue that has a lot of medical and social effects that could probably persist into adulthood. Instigating prevention programs and an improved perception of treatments available for...

For those of us who have kids or know children, it certainly seems like toys and the idea of play has changed. Children's entertainment has taken on a much more passive role, when in our day play was all about imagination and creativity. For example, we'd play dress up or various role playing games, and we'd use the toys we did have in completely creative, loosely structured fun. Nowadays it seems that traditional play where you create a story has been left behind, what with video games and other passive entertainments.

Of course, I don't mean to sound like an old fogey by belittling a new generation of toys, but it's hard to disagree with the importance of active play for a child's development. In fact, classic toys and games are still...

There is a growing trend amongst parents today to push their children to pursue academics all the time with the result that exercising and games take a back seat.

Parents are totally dedicated to their children especially on the stage where they begin to learn things around them. As a child continue to accomplish the milestones of growing, parents become more inspired to teach them. Every parent wants to have a child who seems to have advance knowledge. Simply, we want children who are smart and happy, to be themselves.

The big question is - how can we raise a smart child? Around the world, most parents use educational toys as an effective tool of learning while having a lot of fun. Since these kinds of toys vary from different styles, colors and shapes of learning, children tend to enjoy playing the toys constantly. Learning starts from playing, so parents should be pickier in choosing the right...

Autism disorder, also called autistic disorder or simply autism, is not a disease but rather a developmental disability affecting the brain that usually always manifests itself by the age of three.

Autism is considered to be a pervasive developmental disorder (PDD) and it is estimated that some form of the condition affects as many as six to eight of every 1,000 children today. There is no one set of symptoms or behaviors typical of all people with autism as the condition can cause a vast spectrum of symptoms ranging from the mild to the severe.

Autism is four times more likely to affect males than females, for reasons still unknown, and the condition knows no social, racial, or ethnic boundaries.

Some different types of autism include...

Saying goodbye can be a hard thing for anyone to do, especially a small child. Infants learn at a young age to depend on their caregiver to provide them with everything they need, so what happens when that caregiver leaves? Here Helene Goldnadel is going to talk about child separation anxiety, the causes, and explain how to help a child who is having trouble with separation.

Child separation anxiety is defined as distress or agitation resulting from separation or fear of separation from a parent or caregiver to whom a child is attached to. It can start around 7 months of age, peaks at around 18 months, and can continue until around the age of 3. Many parents are familiar with the screaming toddler who will not let them walk out the door,...

Do not be over protective

There is always a nexus between parenting to protect the child and parenting to allow experiences that will give the child an opportunity to meet risk or challenge successfully. We hate to think our children may be hurt or feel unhappy. Such feelings are usually transient and not a life time blow.

Support the development of friendships, including the disagreements

Friendships are not always easy. Disagreements are par for the course. One certainly does not need to protect a child from normal disagreement between siblings or friends. Maintaining everyday relationships or friendships, rest on your child's ability to bond flexibly with others. Positive relationships are built on being able to communicate positively,...
