This second edition text offers information on guiding young children's personal and social development. It goes beyond the traditional management and discipline approach in early childhood. In a comprehensive, yet easy-to-read manner, the author links together such up-to-date concepts as developmentally appropriate practice, conflict management, mistaken behavior, character development, and anti-bias curriculum. The text is user friendly for both students and instructors and features anecdotes, photographs, and quotes from noted authorities in order to make concepts understandable. Each chapter concludes with a section on parental relationships, a thorough summary, and applied follow-up activities.
