Written for courses in Early Childhood Education and in Child and Family Studies in the Guidance and Management of Young Children.
One of the most respected texts in the field, Constructive Guidance and Discipline: Birth to Age Eight, Sixth Edition, more clearly links guidance techniques to the causes of behavior than any other on the market.
Continuing its quest to provide information about helping children become confident, caring, responsible, and productive people, the recommendations in the text about guidance approaches are based on the sound research of Jean Piaget, Alfred Adler and Carl Roger. The authors emphasize understanding the uniqueness of each child, including how individual temperaments and experiences affect behavior. The book’s approach recommends treating the cause of behavior problems rather than just the symptoms to obtain lasting results, and continually presents clear discussions of child development and developmentally appropriate practices as they relate to the causes of children’s behavior. Providing a unified theory base for analyzing guidance and discipline, the text offers a consistent view of external versus internal motivation, explaining why rewards are as damaging as punishment, and why evaluative praise undermines children’s learning as well as their self-confidence. With a strong emphasis on developmental theory and constructivism, Constructive Guidance and Discipline: Early Childhood Education broadens coverage this edition with new examples relevant to children birth through age eight. The text explains underlying causes for child behavior, weaves numerous preschool and primary classroom examples throughout, contains new Reflection questions to ponder and/or discuss, and includes extensive information on guiding children with special needs.
