What are"Inchstones"?

Often the focus is so much on children achieving the big motor "milestones" (rolling, sitting crawling, walking, skipping, etc.)

For years I have been educating parents and caregivers that there are many smaller skills that need to be achieved and developed before the milestones are met and children succeed. Just like a butterfly has to start their life slowly inching along before they are able to spread their wings.

Especially if your child is having a hard time reaching their milestones, it is important to celebrate and appreciate the small "inchstones" along the way.

I believe that EVERY child is unique and child development should NOT be generalized.  To see how I break down the milestones into inchstones, check out some of my posts below, and make sure you are following me on social media for more!
