PARENTING TODAY'S CHILDREN uses the latest research, strong pedagogical features, and discussion of contemporary and sometimes controversial topics to prepare readers to work effectively with parents and children at all stages of development. A developmentally-based framework helps students and practitioners form connections between developmental topics and the various age groups along a progressive timeline, thereby supporting meaningful learning, improving retention, and fostering critical thinking skills. This approach also promotes an understanding of ecological variables, their influence on child-rearing problems, and effective response strategies. In addition, the text emphasizes developmentally appropriate behavioral strategies that parents can use to guide children in an effective and positive manner. It is supported by MindTap Education, an online learning platform with an e-portfolio and interactive content that helps to prepare students for success in the classroom.
"The material is clearly written and explained thoroughly. In-depth research of facts and content is evident in the narrative and tables included. The examples provided give the reader a clear explanation of the content presented."
— Shadonna M. Watkins, Langston University
