Understanding how children grow, learn, and think helps adults and children live more harmoniously together.

This thorough revision of Constructive Guidance and Discipline: Preschool and Primary Education continues to provide the information to help children to become happy, responsible, and productive people. With a strong emphasis on developmental theory and constructivism, the book explains underlying causes for child behavior, weaves numerous preschool and primary classroom examples throughout, and includes three chapters on guiding children with special physical or emotional needs, learning disabilities, or children who are at risk due to poverty, violence, or loss.

The book is practical in its approach and focuses on how many effective early childhood education practices can prevent or alleviate many common discipline problems. The authors reason that rewards and punishments do not work and that children must learn to make their own decisions based on their own values and convictions. Children are profoundly influenced by the adults in their lives. This book guides teachers and parents to an understanding of how to have a positive impact on their children’s lives.
