    By Dan Gartrell

    In an engaging, reader-friendly style, the author describes developmentally appropriate guidance in the encouraging classroom. With this approach, teachers think beyond the kind of conventional classroom discipline that aims merely to keep children in line—and often fails even to do that! Gartrell shows teachers how to help children develop lifelong skills such as mutual acceptance and cooperation, creative and peaceful problem-solving strategies, and acceptable ways to express difficult emotions. Includes a special chapter on guidance with boys. Copublished with Cengage.

    Discipline need not be punitive! Children’s immediate desires often conflict with those of the adults who care for them. This brochure discusses positive ways in which parents and caregivers can reduce typical difficulties by employing positive solutions to guide children’s behavior. As children grow older, maintaining reasonable expectations and respecting children’s feelings are important for nurturing their self-control and emotional health.

    By Dan Gartrell

    This collection of essays argues that it matters that children gain, through teacher guidance, the social-emotional skills they need to succeed in and participate civilly in modern life. Part One establishes historical roots for the type of education that prepares children for this participation. Part Two makes the case that three best practices in early childhood education offer the approach to education for democracy that society needs. Part Three provides anecdotes and case studies to illustrate how guidance fosters the development of the five democratic life skills.

    Some early childhood programs have adopted no-touch policies, and others allow only a very minimal level of physical contact between teachers and children. Yet touch is as necessary as food or water for young children to thrive and grow physically, cognitively, socially, and emotionally. Experiences of touch in all its forms—whether nurturing touch from adults, tactile explorations of the environment, or physical interactions with peers—are essential to high-quality early care and education.
