Guiding Children's Social Development and Learning, 6E, is a comprehensive overview of child guidance and social development.

Upon reading this text, readers will obtain a unified framework for decision-making and professional practice that incorporates sound principles of children development, relationship enhancement, and behavior management.

The framework of this book enables students to work with children and families from many different backgrounds and circumstances. It assists readers in determining how to support long-range goals in the classroom, while addressing short-term concerns and promotes personal feelings of proficiency and professionalism.
