Overview

Recent decades have witnessed unprocedented advances in research on human development. In those same decades there have been profound charges in public policy toward children. Each book in the Developing Child series reflects the importance of such research in its own right and as it bear on the formulation of policy. It is the purpose series to make the finding of this research available to those who are responsible for raising a new generation and for shaping policy on its behalf. We hope that these books will provide rich and useful information for parents, educators, child-care professors, students of developmental psychology, and all others concerned with the challenge of human growth.
