  • In addition to this, you can easily track the development milestones your child has reached and what to expect next through Immunization Planner ( https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ImmunizePlanner )

  • I was wondering if I can contact you, the thing is I have a lot of questions and I also learn fast when I can see the person in front of me, I love your work and am I single parent  my wife she’s an alcoholic and she’s in prison,hu, aaany way, maybe we can go for dinner or a drink,…I like stories too. think about… giggity giggity goo.

  • 4 to 5 piece puzzles? You’re kidding. My child puts together 100 and 200 piece puzzles together in just a few minutes. She does this on a regular basis, and has done so for well over a year.

  • Your child should know more than “some numbers” by the age of 4 -_-
    Not boasting, but my two year old counts to 30 unassisted. Most of the kids in his daycare class are counting to at least 10 unassisted. If your child is 4 and only knows “some numbers” that should be cause for concern.

  • The most common error in dealing with these delays is parental DENIAL. If you wait until the child is FOUR, you have already lost valuable time. If you are going to have a child, learn the developmental stages and be aware when your child is falling behind the norm. TAKE ACTION THEN! DO NOT DENY. DO NOT DELAY! It is not a PHASE that they are “going through.” They will NOT “grow out of it.” The sad fact is that it only worsens with the passage of time if left untreated.
