Some taking vitamins and has at least an intake

Some environmental factors that influence the development
of a child is what type of home the child dwells in, is the house clean and
well kept? Is it cluttered with little to no space for the child to crawl and
explore their enviroment? Is it safe and child proofed? When a child does not
have a proper enviroment in which to dwell and grow it can affect their mental
health and it can put them at risk for learning disabilities, delays and
behavioral issues such as aggression and hyperactivity and can also lead to the
child having serious life threating illnesses.  
        

Some ways biological factors influence development is prior
to birth through the mother’s diet. Proper nutrition is a vital factor in a
child’s growth and development. The mother must make sure she is eating heathy
and going to the doctor regularly as well as taking vitamins and has at least
an intake of 400 mg of folic acid to reduce the chances of birth defects and
low birth weight once the baby is born. The child having medical conditions is
also a biological factor, like if a child has sickle cell anemia which is a
hereditary trait that can be past on to the child through the parents from
their generational ancestors.

Children grow at varying rates because of either
experience, cultures and practices. For example, According to Developing person
through Childhood (Berger, 2012), “in some cultures they prevent infants from
crawling and walking because of religious or cultural beliefs while others
encourage it by having certain practices such as rhythmic routine stretching,
and others encourage crawling but not walking until the first year”.  Although children develop along the same time
pattern developmental concept varies in nature and individuality. The developmental
abilities of infants and toddlers build on one another, one child may walk at
ten months and another between twelve to fifteen months. This does not mean
that the other child is behind it simply means that there is a unique
individuality in the child’s growth process.
