GUIDING CHILDREN’S SOCIAL DEVELOPMENT AND LEARNING, Seventh Edition, provides a comprehensive overview of child guidance and social development. Focusing on children ages birth through 12 years, it provides a seamless transition from the pre-primary to the primary years and addresses the needs of practitioners working with children in a variety of group settings. Theory and research provide a broad basis for understanding child behavior and establish a foundation for appropriate action. Readers learn how to help children develop positive feelings about themselves as well as social competence, and how to work with children and families from many different backgrounds and circumstances. Readers also learn how to support long-range goals in the classroom while addressing short-term concerns. The book eliminates much of the guesswork and frustration that can hinder practitioners’ efforts to influence children’s social development and behavior--providing a unified framework for decision-making and professional practice that incorporates sound principles of children’s development, relationship enhancement, and behavior management.

With its focus on the socialization of the child, this book helps readers understand how the child develops in a variety of contexts, including the family, community, and early childhood institutions. Child, Family, and Community gives readers the tools they need to work effectively with both children and parents in ways that support children to be healthy, secure, and socialized members of their families, and eventually society. Guidance strategies are presented, as well as child rearing strategies that parents, parent educators and other professionals and practitioners can put to immediate use. The author relates the many contexts in which the child exists--family, school, and community--to Bronfenbrenner's ecological systems theory, which divide's a person's environment into five different levels: the microsystem, the mesosystem, the exosystem, the macrosystem, and the chronosystem.

This book covers a vast range of different philosophical and practical approaches to early education, from Free/Open schools and Waldorf education, to the Core Curriculum and the learning standards approach of the U.S. federal No Child Left Behind Act. By the early years it is meant the ages from infancy through the end of elementary school. While some of the approaches, such as Montessori and Reggio Emilia, are best known for the pre-school years, and the standards approach is best know for American K-12 education, there is more and more overlap and merging across early childhood and elementary education approaches, world-wide. All the approaches covered in this text can be seen in programs from infancy through the end of elementary school, even if each may focus on a certain age within this time frame. We are seeing major changes in infant, pre-kindergarten and elementary school education approaches, world-wide. These changes are the result of several major factors, including the extensive and powerful new brain research; globalisation of markets, ideas, and the Internet; rapid demographic shifts in many developed countries, and a move to more universal education in developing countries and more universal pre-school programs in developed countries. Thus, the focus of this book in describing a variety of current education approaches, with a detailed description of their historical and philosophical foundations and their current practice is very timely.
