Written in a conversational style, yet solidly grounded in child development theory and research, Guidance of Young Children, 9/e focuses on positive and developmentally appropriate child guidance, while encouraging reflection, opportunities for applying knowledge, and the ability to make intentional and wise child guidance decisions. Based on the author’s belief that adults need to have realistic expectations of children, the book emphasizes understanding young children’s development, using a developmentally appropriate approach to guidance, and thinking critically in making wise guidance decisions. The Enhanced Pearson eText features embedded video, video analysis exercises, interactive learning modules, and assessments.
