Summary:
Drawing on the author's 25 years in early childhood education, Guiding Young Children: A Problem-Solving Approach introduces future childcare providers and preschool teachers to a child-centered philosophy of education and care. The problem-solving approach encourages ''kids to do what kids do'' as they learn to take responsibility for their
words and actions. Through real-life examples, sample dialogues, and numerous photographs and posters, the problem-solving approach is explained, stressing environment first, then progressing to listening skills, negotiating, conflict resolution, and setting limits.

New Features
  • Working with Parents: A thoroughly revised Chapter 10 includes extensive coverage on working with parents to solve problems, initiating and conducting parent/teacher conferences, and detailed analyses of actual parent/teacher conferences conducted by the author.
  • Grief and Trauma: The coverage of behavior challenges in Chapter 8 has been expanded to include issues that may arise from a child's experience of grief or trauma.
