Kids grow, learn and develop fast when they receive love, attention, encouragement, mental stimulation with healthy diet and good health care.

COGNITIVE, SOCIAL AND EMOTIONAL, SPEECH AND LANGUAGE, FINE MOTOR / GROSS MOTOR, Among these, development of Fine Motor Skills in early age is foundation for many skills such as,

WRITING, DRAWING, COLORING, BUTTONING, ZIPPERING, TYPING, USING SCISSORS WITH CONTROL, CUTTING, PASTING, OPENING BOXES, USING CUTLERY, CLEANING TEETH, CLIPPING CLOTHES, OPENING AND CLOSING CANISTERS OR BOTTLE CAPS, SELF-CARE TASKS SUCH AS DRESSING, EATING, BRUSHING TEETH, BRUSHING HAIR, etc. 

Fine Motor Skills are the fundamental skills children need to develop before they are able to write

Immature grasp for writing,  difficulty in performing everyday tasks,  disliking precision and perfection in work, etc. can lead to lack of confidence, low self-esteem, slow in completing any given task, refusal in new fine motor tasks for lifetime, frustration with precise hand-eye coordination, avoidance of tasks in life, poor writing skills or avoidance of writing, etc.
