Description

This text combines accepted child-rearing techniques and theory with contemporary approaches in caring for children. The guide promotes positive childhood development and offers support for the adult caregiver, whether parent, foster parent, or residential facility staff. Harris recognizes the importance of adults consistently demonstrating the desired behavior and intervening in the child’s uncritical acceptance of negative media messages. Using charts and examples, the book covers common areas of concern and conflict with uncommon sense, including avoiding bedtime battles, curtailing aggression in children, discussing drugs and alcohol with youth, alleviating school-related anxiety, and protecting children on the Internet.
