Description du produit
Présentation de l'éditeur
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.

Gonzalez-Mena uses loaded language to make her points throughout the text instead of clear writing and drawing from research. That weakens the very important points which the author seeks to make. While the text focuses on open communication, the book's use of emotionally-charged words sets an example of using loaded and judgment-laden terms.
Furthermore, in most chapters the author gets on a political soapbox, promoting pet policy issues which may or may not actually be helpful in the long run. She means well, but it is tiresome to be "preached at" repeatedly.
All in all, I'm sure the author really cares about children and teaching teachers. Yet I'm left feeling this class and the text have been a waste of tie for me.
