Overview

Offering a window to the public and private world of the classroom, Harvard Medical School psychologist Richard Bromfield reveals the feelings and motives, fears and joys, the short-sightedness and grand vision, that both children and their teachers bring to school. Touching and insightful, this thoughtful book explores the complex-and sometimes confusing-ways in which the hearts, minds, and psyches of children and teachers (and even parents) mesh, clash, and do everything in between.

Short but sweet, deep yet accessible, entertaining, and written beautifully, Handle With Care: Understanding Children and Teachers will appeal to and reward educators, parents, psychologists, and others who care dearly about and ever work to improve that most human of enterprises called school.
