Keep a Check on your Child's Growth and Development

Watching your child grow is both fascinating and a matter of pride. The most extraordinary period of physical child growth and development is from birth till 5 years of age. As children progress through various stages child growth and development, all children do not attain the milestones of development at the same time. Children develop skills in varying time frames depending on their unique differences. However, it is advisable to be watchful and monitor their overall growth i.e., physical and behavioural.

Physical Development in Children

Keep a check on your child’s development

Here are a few pointers that you must keep in mind while monitoring your child’s physical development and growth.

  • By the age of 2-3 years, your child should be able to walk, run, climb and jump easily, able to open doors, play with other children and get dressed without help.
  • By the age of 5 years your child will be able to use objects to build a tower, match and name colours, answer simple questions & enjoy rhymes, stories & jokes.
  • Seek advice if your 3-year old tends to fall a lot or does not show interest in playing or if your 5-year old shows stammering or hesitates to play with other children.
