Description

This chronologically organized introduction to child development covers the period from conception through to late adolescence. Arguing that children play an active role in their own development, the authors focus especially upon new data and current theories. The book is designed to explain the basic concepts without the use of unnecessary jargon. For this third edition the text has been revised to bring it into line with the current theories and practices. New material and information is provided on such varied topics as cultural diversity, AIDS, parent-child and sibling interactions, teenage pregnancy, and homeless youth.show more
