9780131189218: Young Child in the Family and the Community, The (4th Edition)

For courses in Child, Family, and Community and Parents/Home-School Relations in Early Child Education. This exciting revision differs from our other text offerings for this course(Berger, Barbour, Wright/Stegelin) in that it focuses primarily on the young child's socialization. So, if social competence and socialization are important to you, this text is one for consideration. Recognizing that socialization is one of the most important aspects of child development, this lively and engaging book examines socialization issues of young children during child rearing, in child care facilities, and in the early education system within a developmental context. Child development as it relates to a child's first eight years, to a healthy family, and to a multicultural community is presented to students through personal stories, vignettes, pictures, and a wealth of examples.
