There are a lot of different contributions that add to a child’s development some physical and others mental. The early ages of a child’s life pave the way into a child’s maturation for the years to come. This staging of development can be gained or increased by the child’s environment and other important counter parts. A child’s healthy eating habits can even also be a factor into a child’s development which goes right with the saying we are what we eat. It is not only through a child’s genes that lay out their intelligence and maturity. We are learners of what is put into us Jean Paige’sreally illustrated that with his research. I child’s education can determine a child’s development. What is placed into a child can gear their intelligence because knowledge is required by what one is taught.
I as a child’s begins to grow their identity is self worth are formed. A child begins to care about what others think and say about them. They have grown into their self identity and began caring what others think of them because they now know others do have concepts of them. Some began to start doubting self image and become more concerned with their outer appearances during their teenage stages. This are very essential stages in a child’s life that need encouraging because a child is searching for their inner self.
Many things in a child’s development can better it or worsen a child. So, it is very important as a child grows to have things surrounding them and placed before them that can truly benefit their development helping them to grow.
