1. What activities and experiences that you and your child engage in might be promoting healthy behavioral practices and an interest in physical activity?
We play with Isabelle and make sure she is engaging in physical activity daily, we take her out to play games and go riding on her tri-cycle, she seems to have a lower than average energy level and gets tired and doesn’t want to play anymore so we encourage her physical activity to stretch her endurance.
2. Describe development of your child’s language and cognitive skills and discuss how these might be affecting his or her interactions with you & your responses.
Isabelle is above average in this area, she is able to speak in sentences and tell stories. We sometimes have misunderstandings and I have to be patient and tell her to use her words.
3. How well is your child adapting to social situations in the home and outside the home? Does your child have any behavior or emotional problems at this point? Why do you think these problems are occurring and what are you doing about them?
She has a difficult time with getting along with other kids at times when it comes to sharing toys, but she has friends and is very social at preschool. It was recommended we are extra affectionate with Isabelle to stop this issue. Other than that we took a parenting questionnaire and rated average on how we deal with Isabelle’s discipline and control with her.
