JAKARTADAILY.ID – Good and healthy housing and environment are important components in supporting children's growth and development. In order for optimal growth and development, the child must be given love and care, security, and comfort.

"The thing that parents need to know in arranging a house so that the growth and development of children are optimal, is namely paying attention to safety and health factors. Maximize light and air ventilation, including sanitation and water sources," said Kurniawan Satria Denta, a Pediatrician in a discussion of "Optimizing Child Growth and Development in Healthy and Beautiful Residentials," which was held by Synthesis Huis on Tuesday, July 26, 2022.

According to Denta, children need stimulation starting from the simplest level, the family. During the growth period, the child not only interacts with family members but also with the surrounding environment. Therefore, public facilities in residential complexes should be designed to be as safe as possible for children.

"Also pay attention to safe materials when children are active. For example, placing the railing on the stairs and the carpet on the floor. Growth and development are influenced by the health of the child. If a child is sick, of course, his development can be hampered,” he explained.

In order for the child to grow and develop properly, according to Denta, parents must be able to make the right decision in choosing a residence.

Pay attention to the location, whether it is near health facilities (hospitals), schools, and easy access. Also, consider the distance between your home and office. The interaction of children and parents will also affect the long-term growth and development of children.

“The development of children aged 0-5 years, actually still focuses on interaction with parents. At that age, parents should have prepared various aspects, including education. If Synthesis Huis provides a kind of daycare or preschool, children can learn and interact. This will make it easier to monitor the growth and development of children if both parents work,” explained Rini.

From a psychological point of view, Rini said, the existence of a residential area does not have a direct impact on children, but if the residential area is healthy, of course, children can grow and develop optimally.
