Some parents tell me they are not interested in completing a developmental screening because their child is not behind. A common myth about these screenings are that they are only looking for delays in your child’s development. The Ages and Stages Questionnaire administered by Help Me Grow does so much more than identify delays. It also helps caregivers to see the strengths their child has and how much they are already learning even as young as 2 months.

I have a lot of memories of spending time at Grandma and Grandpa’s house when I was growing up. At that time, I was blessed to have grandparents that lived less than 2 miles from our house and the other grandparents within a couple hours. I have many good memories of time spent with my grandparents. We spent time together camping, telling stories, riding their 3-wheeler, etc. It was never anything big, but it all came down to one thing they gave me, my siblings and cousins: Time. They spent time with us.
