My assignment is about Britney Spears who was born in McComb, Mississippi on 2nd December 1981. She is 36 years old and is currently in the life stage of early adulthood. I will be writing about 3 different life stages (infancy, early childhood, and adolescence) she has been through.
I do not agree with this statement because children reach different milestone at their own pace.
Babies develop very quickly. They can suck and breast feed and also grasp hands. Babies that are neglected later find it harder to communicate with adults and other children.â€‹
1.1 Explain the sequence and rate of each aspect of development from birth - 19 years.
Unlike adolescents and adults, growth and development is different in infants and toddlers. Observations from the physical, cognitive and perceptual development show that toddlers and infants grow and develop at a faster rate than adults. The physical, cognitive and motor development in infants and toddlers is higher than the same development in adults. This paper is an analysis and interpretation of an observation conducted with an aim to understand the growth and development of toddlers and infants. It explains an observation of an infant boy named Taylor who is 8 months old. Taylor was born in North Carolina and has been living with his parents since he was born.
the speed at which children develop. It involves a time frame linked to age in which a child develops, like children normally roll and crawl before they can hold on to stand at around 6 months to 1 year

I was born in Dallas, Texas, in December of 1994. My parents were unmarried teenagers at the time of my birth and they married each other when I was eight years old. I lived with my mother, grandparents, and uncle until my parents married as an only child and I was collectively raised by all of my family members. I lived in Garland, Texas, for the most part of my infancy and childhood years and then I moved to McKinney, Texas, around the age of eight or nine. Throughout the rest of my childhood I lived in the same city and attended school there throughout the rest of my adolescent years.

Between birth to 6 months babies and children use their senses to become aware e.g. knowing they are hungry, as well as recognising key people in their lives and responding to physical smiles. In the next 6 months, they are beginning to understand tone of voice and begin to have favourite toys. Between 1 to 2 years children start to use objects correctly e.g. a cup. At this point they have a rapidly extending vocabulary and show awareness of others. 3 to 4 years is the age when children are fascinated by why things happen. By age 4 they can give reasons for their actions, remember major events and sort objects by colour and size.
There were so many therapies, appointments, and tests. All of which seemed like they were doing nothing. No progress was being made. It was crushing to see your son struggling so hard with the simplest tasks. I remember the first time he held a crayon, I cried. Little did I know, that green crayon would take us down a road I would have never imagined. At around 18 months old, he found a green crayon his sister had left out and proceeded to write the alphabet on the wall. We were stunned! Where did he learn that? At that moment I realized, just because he can't talk doesn't mean he can't understand. I made it my goal to see the world through Rylan's eyes. Once I allowed myself to see into his world, my outlook on life changed.
Language development is a critical part of a child’s overall development. Language encourages and supports a child’s ability to communicate. Through language, a child is able to understand and define his or her’s feelings and emotions. It also introduces the steps to thinking critically as well as problem-solving, building and maintaining relationships. Learning a language from a social perspective is important because it gives the child the opportunity to interact with others and the environment. This is referred to the interactionist theory.
In my experience as a child care practitioner most of the time, adults mainly focus on the physical development of a child and so quick to base their conclusion or judgement on the physical aspect. The child being able to sit, stand, walk, talk or even making gestures to communicate in which initiated and strongly coached by the adults at a specific month range; at some point babies and young children are made to do actions and gestures to entertain adults all merely to satisfy the adults expectations.
