Newborn And Child Care, Feeding And Development

Four is a wild and woolly age for children. Your child’s doctor will let you know that your child ranks at a particular percentile on a growth chart. It is a way of comparing your baby with babies around the nation. If your baby is in the twenty fifth percentile for weight, for example, this means that 25 percent of babies the identical age and gender within the United States weigh the identical or much less and seventy five percent weigh more. Development percentiles between the fifth and ninety fifth are considered regular.

Here’s the thing, although: you do not need almost as much as you think you do.

The Indoctrination Crowd Is After Your Newborn [OPINION]

No longer content to mold your children’s thinking from kindergarten on, the social justice warriors want your newborns, too. The State House News Service reports legislation is pending on Beacon Hill to establish a universal system of early education and child care from birth to age five.

SHNS reports the legislation calls for a five-year rollout that prioritizes low-income families with the greatest need, and that “it would create a new direct-to-provider funding allocation, based on capacity rather than attendance.” Under the plan, “families earning less than half the statewide median income would be able to access early education and child care options for free, and families above that threshold would pay up to seven percent of their total household income.” The program would also cover after-school and out-of-school time for kids age 5-12, and special needs kids until age 15.
