Helping Your Baby Reach Their Developmental Milestones
Around the age of four months, babies begin to reach for and grasp objects. This occurs when the baby’s eyes begin to focus and work together to gain depth perception. This is the age where you need to beware of broken necklaces and earrings being ripped from the ear. They WILL grasp at anything and everything they have in reach.
As parents, we often think about teaching our child to ride a bike or tie their shoes as being “big milestones”. Getting our children to improve their motor skills is often overlooked because most children learn some on their own. Unless the motor skills are worked on prior to “bike riding age”, your child may have a difficult time learning how to ride a bike. Motor skills are used in almost every aspect of life. How could you, as the parent, help your child with mastering motor skills at an early age?
Toys were created for more than just entertainment.
