Summary

A comprehensive and engaging approach to child development that prepares students to navigate the complexities of working with children in our modern world.

Children Today gives students practical knowledge to support children in their development. It uses stories and case studies to connect theory to practice, with a particular emphasis on how technology impacts the lives of children.
Theories are most useful when we can see their value in real life, as such, a key objective of this text is to show how development theories connect to the lives of children with features that demonstrate how educators can make practical use of theoretical concepts. In addition, Children Today recognizes that today's children are growing up in a digital world. To capture this reality, every chapter discusses issues encountered by children in our digital society.

Children Today is organized chronologically, covering child development from prenatal stages through adolescence. The first four chapters provide a foundational understanding of child development, while the remainder is divided by stages of development, each covering physical, cognitive, and socio-emotional development.
