Understanding Children's Behaviour: 0-11 Years
Linking Theory and Practice
Praise for the first edition:
'This is a great practical textbook which provides an in-depth exploration of behaviour in a very comprehensive and clear structure. The book is rich in resources, ideas, planning and specialised materials related directly to meaningful theory. A wonderful guide for young inexperienced students as well as experienced practitioners.' Dr Eleni Kanira, Senior Lecturer in Early Childhood, Birmingham City University
This book will provide you with a blend of practical ideas and underpinning theory about how children learn patterns of behaving. This book will enable you to consider realistic expectations for different age groups, the likely perspectives of children, and will guide you to deal with children whose behaviour is experienced as challenging.
Understanding Children's Behaviour highlights the importance of sustained, personal relationships with children and of effective partnership between the adults in their life. Discussion of both theory and practice focuses on the practitioner's role in supporting the development of pro-social behaviour.
This book is part of Jennie Lindon's series 'Linking Theory and Practice' series. The established approach provides accessible descriptions of relevant theory and research, yet links this information closely to best practice with children and their families.
The content and style of the series has been developed to support students on Early Childhood degree programmes, Early Years Foundation Degree courses, practitioners working towards Early Years Professional Status and also experienced senior practitioners extending their professional development and that of their team.
