When your child turns 6, it can be such an exciting time, ‘di ba moms? At 6 years, old, your child will start learning how to be more independent. Especially since they are about to start school, or have just started it.
But this does not mean your child is done growing. There are still many milestones that can tell you that your child is still learning and developing every day. And now that they’re learning to be more independent, it’s even more important to make sure they can learn these important skills!
So what are some milestones that you should look out for when your child turns 6? Take a look at this quick guide to some important Immunity, Growth, and Energy milestones.
A 6-year-old child should not only be able to use the toilet alone, they should be able to do most of their daily hygiene by themselves. For example, they should be able to brush their teeth without help!(1)
This is a great time to make sure your child regularly does other hygiene tasks as well. Important hygiene activities include brushing and flossing, regular hand washing, regular showers, and covering their mouths when they sneeze or cough.(2)
This does not only keep them clean and smelling fresh, it also helps keep away germs and disease!
Keeping themselves clean and healthy is one of the most important parts of growing older and becoming a Batang May Laban! Of course, they will still need the essential immune-boosting vitamins and minerals like Vit. A, Vit. C, Vit. D, Vit. E, Zinc, and Selenium. With a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle, Bonakid Pre-School 3+ can give your child all these vitamins, and help them grow up to become a Batang May Laban!
At 6 years old, your child will continue to grow, and learn even more new skills! They will also start to be able to learn more complex skills.
For example, they can start to learn how to kick a ball while running. They could also learn how to jump rope by jumping and spinning a rope at the same time.(1)
With this level of growth, your child could even start learning how to understand and play sports! This age is also around the time that your child will be able to understand teamwork, which is perfect for team sports like basketball or soccer!(3)
But to make sure your Batang May Laban gets all the Growth they need, you also need to give them vitamins and minerals like Protein, Calcium, and Vitamin D, to help build strong bones and muscles. Bonakid Pre-School 3+ is a great way to give your child these essential nutrients!
Your child will need lots of energy so they can play with their friends, and to keep them alert in school. As they learn to become more independent, they will need even more energy!
Mental energy is very important for 6-year-olds since this is when they will start to learn simple addition and subtraction.(1) They should also be able to focus on a single task for up to 15 minutes. (3)
At this age, your child will also be able to have more complex conversations with you and with others!(1) This is because they will be able to understand words more, including words that have more than one meaning. For example, they will know that the word “wave” can mean waving to a friend, or a wave in the ocean.(3)
Make sure your child has all the energy they need to make friends and do well in school by giving them energy-boosting B-vitamins B1, B2, B3, B6, B7, and B12! All these vitamins and more can be found in Bonakid Pre-School 3+ to help your child grow up to have Laban ng Katawan!
Keep an eye out for all these milestones, and even more new skills and talents that your child will start learning as they grow older. Along with Bonakid Pre-School 3+, which can help your child achieve Laban ng Katawan, they will be well on their way to even more milestones as a Batang May Laban!
