Shows how children can learn personal responsibility and judge right and wrong for themselves. 


With a strong emphasis on developmental theory and constructivism, Constructive Guidance and Discipline: Preschool and Primary Education explains underlying causes for child behavior, weaves numerous preschool and primary classroom examples throughout, and includes three chapters on guiding children with special needs.  This book more clearly links guidance techniques to the causes of behavior than any other on the market and provides a clear discussion of childhood development and developmentally appropriate practices. 


  • Addresses common childhood behavior problems and links each cause to a specific guidance approach that is explained and described.
  • Uses vignettes and examples of guidance and discipline issues throughout the book and helps students understand the research and theory base behind them.
  • Concludes each chapter with For Further Thought activities and Recommended readings that provide useful classroom activities and appropriate problem solving practices for students.
