Description - Young Children, Parents and Professionals by Margaret Henry

As early education and very early child care increase, parents and professionals face many difficult questions. What are the effects of early education on children? Are parents fulfilling their roles? What should teachers' roles be? Seldom asked are more basic questions: what are the fundamental "needs" of young children? or parents? or professionals? How can these differing sets of needs be met? Margaret Henry proposes three dimensions of care-giving behaviour through which parents and professionals not only help young children to develop, but can also help one another's development. Evidence of positive change comes both from her own research in family day care and from the work of her students, practicing teachers and child care personnel. Their examples involve often hard-to-reach parents: tired, employed, alienated, bossy, culturally/ethnically diverse. There are suggestions here for professionals and parents interested in enhancing their relationships with one another and the outcomes for young children.
