Emotional wellbeing of a child is equally important as physical wellbeing. Good and sound mental health in children allows them to cope with the stress that life throws at them later on and build healthy relationships with people around them.
Crucial physical, mental, emotional growth and development happens in the early stages of life. An enriched environment stimulates the brain and mind, making it more efficient and receptive.
Therefore, any kind of underlying developmental disorder, the presence of negative temperamental traits or the occurrence of traumatic events at this tender age can have a detrimental effect on the development of the child.
From achieving developmental milestones to unhealthy observational learnings, to attachment or addiction patterns, there are many factors that threaten the positive growth and development of the child. However, there are ways to intervene and ensure that the child gets the best care at home, school and in the society.
