Child Development

Child development questions and answers on Quibly cover the full biological, psychological, emotional and social changes that take place in our children from the moment they’re born until they finally emerge as adults.

We know more about our children’s neurological, emotional and physical development now than we ever have, yet we still have more questions than answers! Technology has given parents more ways to track milestones, tools to help language development and boost intellectual development.

But parents aren’t the only ones accessing technology. Kids are surrounded by tech and innovation from the moment they’re born. When it comes to the neurological, psychological. emotional and social impacts of technology on kids, research is still just scratching the surface. And the Quibly community is right at the forefront of the conversation.

Quibly child development experts and intellectually curious parents debate baby and child development issues and explore their own experiences from newborn and baby development through to the teenage experience with every child milestone in between.

Child development on Quibly tackles some of the biggest questions of modern parenting:

  • What impact does social media have on our children’s understanding of friendship and family?
  • Does using iPads and other tablet computers enhance our children’s language development or damage it?
  • Should kids be denied television until school age?
  • Is exposure to technology affecting baby and child development, or boosting it?
  • How can we ensure our children reach their child milestones?
  • Can gaming be used to enhance social skills?
  • Are official baby milestones helpful or out of touch?

All Quibly members, both parents and experts, can ask questions about child development, baby development, emotional development, social development, psychological development as well as milestones and challenges experienced by children with special needs. As you will see below, the community share answers based on opinion, experience and fact, giving full insight into all the big questions and daily concerns around child development.

Academic studies into baby development and child development tend to group children into defined periods and intervals, including newborn (from birth to four weeks old), infant (up to a year), toddler (aged one to three), preschooler (three to four or four to six depending on country of origin), school aged child (aged six to 13), adolescent (aged 13 to 19). However, on Quibly age is broken down into finer detail, so you can ask child development questions about very specific ages and stages. After all, the development of a one-year- old can be very different to a three-year-old, the latter of which is likely talking, running and perhaps using the bathroom. The former of which is experiencing new challenges and milestones all the time, from walking to word noises. The child development topic area on Quibly is also the ideal place to ask for suggestions on technology and innovative products that can help your child’s development, help parents track milestones or get advice on how to make sure that these wonderful technological advances are being used to boost - and not hinder - development.
