Pregnancy (by Wikipedia)
In human reproduction, pregnancy (or gestation) is the development of one or more offspring, known as an embryo or fetus, in the uterus of a woman.
Childbirth usually occurs about 38 weeks after conception. In women who have a menstrual cycle length of four weeks, this is approximately 40 weeks from the start of the last normal menstrual period (LNMP). Health authorities recommend that women not artificially begin delivery with labor induction or caesarean section before 39 weeks as this amount of time is considered "full term" for the child to develop. Conception can be achieved through sexual intercourse or assisted reproductive technology.
An embryo is the developing offspring during the first 8 weeks following conception, and subsequently the term fetus is used until birth. In many societies' medical or legal definitions, human pregnancy is somewhat arbitrarily divided into three trimester periods of three months each, as a means to simplify reference to the different stages of prenatal development. The first trimester carries the highest risk of miscarriage (natural death of embryo or fetus). During the second trimester, the development of the fetus can be more easily monitored and diagnosed. The third trimester is marked by further growth of the fetus and the development of fetal fat stores. The point of fetal viability, or the point in time at which fetal life outside of the uterus is possible, usually coincides with the late second or early third trimesters; babies born at this early point in development are at high risk for having medical conditions and dying.
Information on the activities and achievements will usually be quite well documented for the parent to make easy reference should they need information.
There is also information on how to direct the child to ensure the proper development targets are reached successfully and effectively.
Most of the information available on the development basics of a child would be focused on the following aspects:
There would usually be an approximate timetable on the prenatal development that would be the ideal benchmark to measure against.
There would also be information on the normal stages of child development which would ideally be broken into stage of about 5 years each, starting from birth.
There is also information available on the general development sequence to be experienced from the toddler stage through to the preschool stage.
These stages would also cover information on various levels of the intellectual, language, social interaction, physical, and any other development that would be deemed important by the parent.
This is especially useful for the parent who is concerned about ensuring the child’s growth rate is according to the norm and does not
want to be pressured into forcing the child to grow in areas where there is no need for such pressure.
The development milestone guide is a chart or a format that ideally depicts the child’s skills within a very specific time line. These specifics are usually calculated based on the average growth rate mentally and physically by census taken from similar age groups around the globe.
However the parent should also be aware that these guidelines on the expected milestones are just that, guide lines, and there is really no need to panic should the child in question be a little late in a particular area of development.
It is possible that some children will develop at their own pace thus there is no real need for the parent to be over anxious over the matter. However if the development is significantly later than expected, a doctor’s advice should be sought.
The following is a very general guide of the expected milestone of what the child’s development should be:
A few months after birth, the newborn will be expected to be able to respond to physical and visual stimulation. The bond with the prime caregiver will be established and evident in small ways such as a smile or the clutching with its fingers.
The baby will also usually be able to cry according to its needs and will respond to any high pitch sound easily.
Following this period of growth the now 4 month old baby will be able to grasp at object and squeal with pleasure while also being able to react to familiar voices and routines.
There will also be evidence of the baby taking a keener interest in its surroundings and sounds.
At 6 months most babies will be able to lift their head and move shoulders. They will also be able to better decipher things and its required responses. Some will even be able to make one syllable sounds.
These expected milestone lists usually go on till the teenage stage.

Educational games are games explicitly designed with educational purposes, or which have incidental or secondary educational value. All types of games may be used in an educational environment. Educational games are games that are designed to teach people about certain subjects, expand concepts, reinforce development, understand an historical event or culture, or assist them in learning a skill as they play. Game types include board, card, and video games.
Game based learning (GBL) is a type of game play that has defined learning outcomes. Generally, game based learning is designed to balance subject matter with gameplay and the ability of the player to retain and apply said subject matter to the real world.
Learning is acquiring new, or modifying existing, knowledge, behaviors, skills, values, or preferences and may involve synthesizing different types of information. The ability to learn is possessed by humans, animals and some machines. Progress over time tends to follow learning curves. Learning is not compulsory; it is contextual. It does not happen all at once, but builds upon and is shaped by what we already know. To that end, learning may be viewed as a process, rather than a collection of factual and procedural knowledge. Learning produces changes in the organism and the changes produced are relatively permanent.
A game is structured playing, usually undertaken for enjoyment and sometimes used as an educational tool. Games are distinct from work, which is usually carried out for remuneration, and from art, which is more often an expression of aesthetic or ideological elements. However, the distinction is not clear-cut, and many games are also considered to be work (such as professional players of spectator sports/games) or art (such as jigsaw puzzles or games involving an artistic layout such as Mahjong, solitaire, or some video games).
The sweet and simple game is designed specifically for the minds and fingertips of young children. Not only will this game keep your child’s attention, but it introduces the fundamental concept of object permanence in a fun and friendly way!
