When parents are asked what they want for their children, they
usually say they want children who
- feel good about themselves;
- get along with others;
- have healthy, strong bodies;
- are smart and successful; and
- can talk about what they need and want.
These answers match the ways children grow and develop. All children can
develop emotional, social, physical, intellectual and communication skills.
These skills help babies grow into well-balanced, successful adults.
All children grow and develop. But no two babies do it in the same way at
the same time. Each baby is unique. Each has strengths in some areas.
Each also has needs. If you have concerns about your baby’s development,
talk to his doctor.
