Is the Chinese way of fighting poverty suitable for Russia?

Parents are especially proud of their child's achievements if he is ahead of other children in some way: for example, he begins to sit down on his own at 4 months, and walk at six. But should you always rejoice at the early successes of the baby? Or could it be a worrying sign? We found out from a neurologist.

We decided to bring attention to this topic with viral videos on social media. Recently, news has appeared every now and then, where parents talk about the early achievements of their children, and commentators are divided into two camps: some admire the skills beyond their years, while others are worried about the health of babies and believe that early "exploits" are not the norm .

Little Freya Minter from England has just become the heroine of such discussions on the net. Recently, her parents posted a video on the Internet, which shows how a girl at 6.5 months gives her first steps (usually children begin to walk at 9-12 months). According to relatives, the baby could sit without assistance as early as 4 months. And at about the same time, she began to walk, holding the hands of adults. And on an independent "hike" went after 2.5 months.

After watching the video, some people advised to put Freya in the Guinness Book of Records. Others expressed concern about walking so early.

And in the next video - the girl Lula, she is also from England. According to the parents, the baby began to stand up as early as 8 weeks. At 3.5 months, her mother Emily Derrick filmed a video where Lula is already standing alone.

This video also went viral and generated a lot of comments. Again, people began to express contradictory opinions: some admired Lula, and some claimed that she had health problems.

We tried to understand the controversial issue: is it still bad or good when a child starts to sit early, get on his feet and walk?

Standard skills of children

Iryna Shevchenko, a children's neurologist of the highest category of the LODE medical center, says that most children develop according to a certain standard. Usually a child up to one year old learns skills in the following sequence:

- briefly holds the head by 2 months;

- by the age of 3 months he raises his head, lying on his stomach, and for several minutes examines everything around him, and also tries to get the toys hanging over him, because grasping begins to develop at 3-4 months;

The child at 4 months began to sit down, and at six - to walk
