Watching a child grow is a beautiful experience. From their first steps to their first words, and their first full sentence, there is so much to look forward to. But how do you know if your child is on track – developing at the right speed?
Take out multiple choice quiz to see if your child is making healthy progress.
Answer all the questions below:
How old was your child when they started eating solid foods?
Breast-feeding is recommended in the first 6 months after birth. By the ages 4-6 months most babies are ready to start eating solid foods as a compliment to breast-feeding and formula-feeding.
When did your child start taking its first steps?
Although each child’s development is different and they learn at different paces, most children start taking their first steps around 9-12 months and can walk by the time they are 14 or 15 months old.
How old was your child when they had their first imaginary friend?
Children have imaginary friends when they reach pre-school age as their minds and imaginations have developed well enough. As they get older and their imaginations develop more, they shed the idea of an imaginary friend as they know “better”.
How do you spend time with your child to help them develop?
Children develop through interaction with others as well as good nutrition. Engaging with your child regularly, speaking to them and playing with them stimulates development as children learn mostly from watching those around them.
Keep an eye on your child’s development to make sure they’re growing at the right pace. With the right balance and a little help from you they should grow into a strong, happy human being.
