>> Feb 24, 2018



Childhood is the very first phase of life that we have all gone through. And since it is the first stage of life, it is also one of the most fragile stages where a child develops motor and cognitive skills. Experts advise parents and guardians to be active participants in their children’s development and we are here to tell you why.

Watching your toddler learn how to crawl and finally walk will give you immeasurable joy. Seeing them learn how to communicate and finally express themselves is also satisfying. Below are 3 reasons why it is important for you, as a mom or dad, to be part of this exciting and magical journey. So, (please) keep reading…

  • To enhance their motor skills – Children are highly dependent on adults, especially their parents. So, take your place and help your child keep those hands and feet active. It is an important thing to do during their development stage because hand and feet movement boosts the child’s electric motor skills. And to encourage your little one to stay active, learn to reward him/her for his/her initiative and dedication.
  • So how do you boost these skills? Start by placing the child’s toys at a reachable distance. Watch the child try to reach for the toy and help them where necessary. However, because once children grab something, they automatically put in their mouth, ensure that they play with clean toys and toys that are big enough to avoid chocking.
  • To boost their mental growth – How, you may ask? Well, from a renowned child and family development specialist, you can improve your child’s mental power by letting him/her play with toys of various sizes and shapes. For example, building blocks will be a good start for the child. This will help the child learn how to stack the blocks and he/she might even learn how to group the stacks into same color and designs with time. 
  • To improve their control skills – Children need to learn both propulsive and receptive control skills; the skills to reach out for something and to let go off another. For example, your child needs to understand that they should put something they are holding down before they can pick something else. So, during your time with him/her, place two toys in his/her hands. When the child firmly grabs them, introduce a third toy and help him/her learn how to let go of what is in their hands before they can pick something else.

Your child’s growth and development may be at a different pace from a friend’s child. However, as the parent or guardian, being part of their growth and development will boost their confidence in life. Moreover, through all the fun activities that your child will be involved in, you will get to share their happiness and develop a special bond with him/her. So, find all the fun and enjoyable things for your child to do and make this process a pleasant one by joining in on the fun.
