Understanding your child's developmental journey makes it easier for you to meet their emotional and psychological needs.
Each year offers different opportunities for you to socialise your child, so knowing what's in store will help you make the most of the year ahead.
Children develop through a predictable sequence yet there is a unique course for every child. Children don't progress at the same rate so there are plenty of variations.
The best way to manage is to respond to children as they are. Information about your child's specific age will assist, but it's good to get information from the previous stage as well as the next stage, as many children live through more than one stage at a time.
