Child Development Period Birth To Six

Many parents, during this early stage, focus on teaching colors, vocabulary and even teaching their children how to read, which are all important things. The only problem is, sometimes we forget about the practical life lessons that will help give our children the tools they need to become self-sufficient, independent children. It’s easy to overlook the practical life skills, but this period should be dedicated to teaching our children how to do things for themselves and creating environments that assist them in doing so…even if it takes them 5 times longer to do something than it would take you.
