Discovering Successful Pathways in Children's Development by Thomas S. Weisner
Book Description"Discovering Successful Pathways in Children's Development" provides a new perspective on the study of childhood and family life.Successful development is enhanced when communities provide meaningful life pathways that children can seek out and engage. Successful pathways include both a culturally valued direction for development and competence in skills that matter for a child's subsequent success as a person as well as a student, parent, worker, or citizen.To understand successful pathways requires a mix of qualitative, quantitative, and ethnographic methods the state of the art for research practice among developmentalists, educators, and policymakers alike. This volume includes new studies of minority and immigrant families, school achievement, culture, race and gender, poverty, identity, and experiments and interventions meant to improve family and child contexts."Discovering Successful Pathways in Children's Development" will be of enormous value to everyone interested in the issues of human development, education, and social welfare, and among professionals charged with the task of improving the lives of children in our communities."
