It’s Time To Get Ready For Those Older Milestones!

Jun 13 2019

As parents, we often build our idea of what stage of life our kids are at by the milestones that they hit. The first time they roll over, the first time they crawl, first words, first steps, all of these are signs that your child is developing and growing up and they can be some of the most exciting times of your child’s life. However, as your child gets older, it’s easy to feel like a lot of those milestones kind of start to dry up. After all, once your child is in school, they start growing at a much more even rate and don’t have the same kinds of developmental leaps that they had as a baby or toddler. However, that most certainly doesn’t mean that your child isn’t going to end up hitting some incredibly significant milestones that you have to be ready for. This is especially true when they hit their teen years and above. A lot of these milestones can be very different from the developmental ones of the past, but that doesn’t make them any less important. With that in mind, here are some ways that you can make sure to handle many of the milestones of your older child.

May 24 2019

You know what they say about being a new parent, right? That they’d never get any time to sleep, that they run almost exclusively on caffeine and have to spend all their time sprinting back and forth, and all that kind of stuff?

Well, there’s obviously some truth to those stereotypes. Babies are fragile and entirely dependent on their parents, and need plenty of attention, care, and focus, for a significant amount of time.
