about

The Power of Guidance: Teaching Social-Emotional Skills In the Early Childhood Classroom gives readers valuable insight into using guidance in the early childhood setting through a collection of popular writings on this timely topic. Taking into consideration the social and emotional development in young children, the book examines such areas as understanding why children behave the way they do and how to use the guidance approach to succeed in teaching acceptable social behaviors. The material discusses the differences between such important concepts as patience and understanding and between misbehavior and mistaken behavior. These concepts provide insight into the importance of developing an encouraging classroom and how that leads to non-punitive strategies for managing the classroom setting.
