by : Jennie Lindon | Aug 16, 2007
Written by Jennie Lindon, the bestselling Early Years author, Understanding Children and Young People: Development from 5-18 Years is refreshingly clear and readable, and makes the links between theory and practice in a very user-friendly way -- this is crucial for good practice. It covers every conceivable developmental issue from 5-18 years, providing excellent coverage of the mid-childhood and adolescent years, including topics such as:
- Children and young people in society. What is growing up? What transitions do young people face?
- Personal and social development. Identity; friendships and family; play and leisure activities; relationships; part-time work; social, cultural, faith allegiances, and possible conflicts
