Does my child need help? How can I tell?
Each child is unique and every one develops at their own pace. The most important thing to remember is that everyone is different. Ask yourself:
- Is my child happy?
- Is my child functioning in an age appropriate way?
- Is my child able to express his/her needs and feelings?
- Is my child’s behavior conducive to our family life?
- Does my child have any fears, anxiety or other negative emotions that hinder his/her daily life?
If you are truly concerned with your child’s development it is always recommended to speak with your pediatrician.
