All of us who have children know that 6 years is an exciting age, in which we enjoy our son and our son because he is getting older. They are becoming more independent and their learning evolves in a more accentuated way. We explain how your child is at that age and what changes you will notice in him. Pay attention because we explain to you what the development of six-year-olds is like.
6-year-olds show many physical changes. From the fall of your first baby teeth up to a greater vitality and desire to play outdoors. These are some of the changes you will notice in your six-year-old:
- At this time the weight and height of the child continue to increase at a constant speed.
- Baby teeth begin to fall out, and the first permanent molars emerge.
- The diseases that he suffers most frequently are infectious, especially otitis, tonsillitis, pneumonia or bronchitis. Your immune system is up against various microorganisms.
- Are very activeTherefore, they tend to lose weight. They need to jump, run, slip, fall, stain, and tear their clothes. They don't stop for a minute, especially the boys. Girls are generally somewhat calmer from a physical point of view.
- They play and interact with other children and it is very common for them to suffer 'accidents' (injuries, sprains, fractures ...).
An annual review by the pediatrician is advisable, will assess your speed and growth, weight and height, perform a general examination and review your vaccination schedule. He will also ask us about the child's toilet training, which at this age is usually complete, during the day and at night, although we should not pressure children if they still 'have leaks' at night, or even during the day, if they are very focused or entertained in the game. Greater control of your body and greater muscle tone will allow us to advance in this regard.
We must also take them for review at the children's dentist, who will monitor if there is any cavities or if it is necessary to prepare an orthodontic treatment and to the ophthalmologist to assess their visual acuity and their visual abilities, essential for literacy.
The changes at the intellectual level are striking, so we realize how old our son is getting.
- They pass from Early Childhood Education a Primary Education which implies a great change, the child feels that more is demanded of him, he is no longer the youngest of the school, but moves on to the older classes. In the afternoons he already has the obligation to 'do homework' and parents ask for more effort at home.
- The game is still necessary for its growth and development, it is a way of learning to position oneself in the world. We must allow them to play every day. Havefavorite gamessuch as cars, trains, or dolls. They also love to collect things (stickers, badges ...).
