Growth and Development
Understanding your child's changing and emerging growth and development is an important part of parenting. As infants and children progress through a series of growth stages, they may encounter physical and emotional challenges, and some relatively common problems during these years.
Growth and development includes not only the physical changes that will occur from infancy to adolescence, but also some of the changes in emotions, personality, behavior, thinking, and speech that children develop as they begin to understand and interact with the world around them. Listed in the directory below you will find additional information regarding growth at different ages and stages of a child's life, for which we have provided a brief overview.
If you cannot find the information in which you are interested, please visit the Pediatrics Online Resources page in this Web site for an Internet/World Wide Web address that may contain additional information on that topic.
