Summary "Positive Child Guidance, 3E offers developmentally appropriate guidance strategies that help young children to become responsible, respectful, and productive community members. It provides tools for supporting the long-term development of responsibility, self-confidence, and self-control in children. Beginning with the premise that children should become cooperative members of a democratic society, the book outlines the theory, as well as the practical guidance strategies, needed to achieve this goal. Positive Child Guidance embraces a philosophy of deep respect for the unique qualities of individual children, while also providing users with detailed, real-world strategies for dealing with the myriad of behaviors that children exhibit. It teaches adults how to combine positive assertiveness and high expectations with genuine understanding, acceptance, and compassion. Anyone who works with children will find this book immediately useful."--BOOK JACKET.
