Child development is fascinating, and as a parent of a child model the more you know about it the better. You probably noticed your child’s unique personality coming out those first few months of life -reaching eagerly for a rattle or perhaps pushing away a teddy bear. After the age of three, your child's personality is really going to emerge.
From age three, children are becoming more comfortable expressing themselves with words, and they begin to interact more with others. They are too young to understand what child modelling is, but can enjoy it anyway.
During a child’s early years they start to gain some self-control and awareness of consiquences. They begin to rely less on you and others and more on themselves. They're learning how to calm themselves when they get excited, frightened, or upset, and they're becoming more attentive and less emotionally reactive.
By age 5, kids typically start showing more concern for mom and dad, at last starting to understand that you have your own needs and feelings. They also begin to show affection more easily, develop a fantasy life, and may see-saw between being demanding and being cooperative.
While your child's personality will blossom on its own naturally, there's actually a lot you can do to help as well as a few things to avoid. Children are all unique, even siblings, so don’t try to make them alike if you have a number of kids.
Interacting with others in a photo shoot helps kids develop physically, mentally, and emotionally. It teaches them to work in groups, have confidence, develop their craft, and try on different stances. When kids play, they practice decision-making, learn to stand up for themselves, create, explore, and lead.
