Overview

The best-selling CHILD, FAMILY, SCHOOL, COMMUNITY: SOCIALIZATION AND SUPPORT, now in its Ninth Edition, offers an excellent introduction to socialization that is grounded in a powerful conceptual framework—Urie Bronfenbrenner's Bioecological Model of Human Development. Examining how the school, family, and community influence children's socialization, this text addresses complex issues in a clear, comprehensive fashion. An enjoyable read, it's packed with meaningful, timely examples and effective study tools that ensure you gain a solid understanding of chapter concepts. A sensitive presentation of diversity issues includes matters related to culture, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, and special needs. Updated throughout, this edition features a stronger emphasis on NAEYC and DAP standards as well as new information on diversity in all forms, technology and the impact of media, bullying, and other topics.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"[The text] is a great combination of providing an overview of families, different types of schools, and how to get involved in the community. It allows my students to show the effects of how families, schools and communities can work together for the better of the child."

"[The text is] a comprehensive sociological look at the ecology of the child. This text really utilizes the ecological model and makes it come alive."
