Beginning Pediatric Nursing Series
During the school-age years, from age 6 through the onset of puberty, the child is becoming increasingly independent and interacting with others outside the family. He is also starting to develop self-confidence and challenge his own abilities. By the school age years, children are better able to communicate their needs and problems, but they should not be treated as simply small adults. Their bodies still function differently and they have different thought processes. Therefore, it is critical for nurses and other healthcare professionals to understand the concepts of normal growth and development so that they can deliver age-appropriate care to their patients.
