Learning about the stages of child development will strengthen your relationships with kids and make your interactions more meaningful and fun. Here’s how:

1) Inside information about children’s experience of the world.

Children learn, grow and change very quickly, particularly in the earlier years (0-6). Understanding the physical, psychological and social changes taking place during each developmental stage gives parents and caregivers a clearer sense of why kids do what they do, and the best ways to support their growth.

2) Appropriate expectations.

Just as no one expects a baby to discuss politics, it’s unreasonable to expect toddlers to sit quietly for long periods of time or for teenagers to have adult levels of self-control and risk-assessment. When we understand what kids are physically, psychologically and socially experiencing, it’s much easier to set appropriate and constructive expectations.

3) Effective communication.

The better you know your audience, the easier it is to get your message across. This has tremendous value when it comes to managing your children’s behavior and helping them master new skills and concepts.

Stay tuned as we begin taking a closer look at each stage of development!
