Overview

Separation often evokes feelings of fear and anxiety in all of us-children, parents, and teachers alike. Because the success or failure of early separation experiences can affect a child's movement toward independence, teachers and parents must know how to help young children cope with the unpleasant feelings sometimes associated with separation.

In Everyday Goodbyes, an eminent educator helps teachers and parents understand why children often take time to adjust to separation. This reassuring and straightforward resource shows how adults can work together to make the transition to child care, preschool, or kindergarten a good one. The author offers many practical suggestions to ease the separation process for all involved.

This wonderfully sensitive book features photographs and real-life anecdotes of children, teachers, and parents to illustrate all aspects of the adjustment process.
