LUC­KNOW: Par­ents must never force their chil­dren for per­for­mance as there were var­i­ous stages of de­vel­op­ment and each one them had a range, said ex­perts at a work­shop on par­ent­ing and child con­cerns: ‘The Early Years: Preg­nancy and In­fancy’ here on Satur­day. The work­shop was a part of"The Par­ent Com­pany: Sea­son 1 ini­tia­tive by My School and the guest speak­ers were gy­nae­col­o­gist Dr Nee­lam Vi­nay, pae­di­a­tri­cian Dr Shalini Bhasin and Dr Neha Anand, an ex­pert in child psy­chol­ogy. Saral Bhasin, an aca­demic co-or­di­na­tor, said a child had grow­ing up age where mo­tor and fine mo­tor skills were the first things to de­velop. Dr Shalini Bhasin said that par­ents should be aware about the range their child might take for ev­ery stage of de­vel­op­ment. “The range or win­dow pe­riod refers to a child tak­ing time to achieve a mile­stone such as sit­ting, walk­ing or speak­ing,” she said adding: “Some chil­dren might sit in four months and oth­ers might take 6 months for the same. But if a child takes too long for achiev­ing such mile­stones the par­ents can go to a doc­tor.” Dur­ing the ses­sion, par­ents asked ques­tions re­gard­ing growth in chil­dren that were an­swered by the panel of ex­perts.
