Overview

Positive Child Guidance / Edition 7

Positive Child Guidance, 3E assists students in developing effective strategies for dealing with the behavior of young children. It provides tools for supporting the long-term development of responsibility, self-confidence and self-control in children. Beginning with the premise that children should become cooperative members of a democratic society, the text outlines the theory, as well as the practical guidance strategies, needed to achieve this goal. With a warm, engaging and meaningful style, Positive Child Guidance embraces a philosophy of deep respect for the unique qualities of individual children, while also providing detailed, real-world strategies for dealing with the myriad of behaviors that children exhibit.
