Product Description


“The text uses more of the specific strategies that are applicable when working daily with children. The information is accurate and speaks to children’s needs. It is important for adults to understand the children’s point of view: stressors, temperaments, type of caregiving under which children have been raised. This viewpoint is unique among texts. Most texts present material, concepts, strategies, etc. to “feed the students,” whereas M. Marion presents material with the child’s needs in mind. For once we have an author that practices DAP!”


-- Susan Christian, Patrick Henry Community College

--This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Tool for Teachers and Caregivers May 31 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is wonderful for giving tools to teachers/caregivers/parents to help with guidance issues that come up in everyday life. There are clear examples, end of chapter reviews and an invaluable index for quick reference.

I had to buy this book as part of a course that I am studying, but am now recommending it to anyone who has or deals with children.

One other thing, this book says that it is for use with children ages 2-8, but I really think that this is something that can be started while children are still infants, and carried on throughout their lives (I am currently using some of the strategies with my 16 yr old son).

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful book!! Feb. 7 2010
I bought this book used and it was in great shape. Nobody could say that it was used. I buy all by books (new and used)at amazon.ca and I have never been disappointed. They always tell you a realistic description of the books' conditions. Love it!!!

By Dr. B. - Published on Amazon.com
Marion does an excellent job guiding readers through the ups and downs of child guidance. This book is meant for those who believe in teaching children rather than punishing them. Tips galore enable you to make the necessary changes to help young children become socially well-adjusted adults.
