Quality time is meant to help your child grow mentally and physically strong. Sometimes, when you spend time with your kids you may notice their growth is not on track. Do you think your little girl or boy should be able to perform a task, that they’re not? If yes, or if you never thought about the clues they could be giving you about their growth, you should dial 2-1-1 or find the location of a physician practice providing developmental screening near you.
