Understanding normal child development is essential for adults when trying to discern if behavior is out of the norm, or indicative of abuse. It also helps educators and parents know how to properly interact with a child of a given age and how to have expectations that are appropriate. See our Safety Brief on Child Development and these additional resources to learn more.
