Drawing Squares

delaynieandellasmomma posted:
My daughter is going to turn 4 on March 21st, and I've been checking her development according to the online milestone recommendations. The only thing that she isn't doing is drawing squares. She can draw crosses, but not squares. Is that a big deal? I realized that we have worked on recognizing shapes, but I hadn't encouraged her to draw them. She had lead poisoning, so I get very nervous about her development. Her language and cognitive skills are through the roof, she can balance, hop on one foot, work scissors pretty well, and throw/ catch a ball. It's just those darn squares. Any thoughts?

Remember that every child is going to progress at different rates, if she is great in all other areas, I would just say work with her on it but don't make it a big focus.
