Development Tracker -- Four-year-olds

They move at the speed of light, racing up stairs, dashing off on bikes and trikes and sprinting from one end of the house to the other. Your relatively calm 3-year-old has grown into a firecracker. On occasion, his demeanor -- boisterous, bossy and belligerent -- may remind you of those turbulent toddler years. But fear not. This difficult period is usually short-lived. And by the time he arrives at his fifth birthday, he'll be calm, collected and brimming with self-confidence.

Check out your 4-year-old's skills and milestones:
