Children achieve gross motor skills in a predictable pattern. Each skill builds on the previous skill. After mastering sitting and crawling, children move on to upright locomotor skills. Learning how to pull to stand is a child's first bipedal skill. From here, they progress to walking and then to other advanced skills like running, hopping, skipping, and more.
