Developing Caring Relationships Among Parents, Children, Schools, and Communities
Dana McDermott (2007)
Textbook looks at parent-professional-child relations very differently than other books in this area, focusing on parents and teachers as adult learners who should be growing and learning along with the children in their care. Accessibly written, the book synthesizes the latest theories and research on parent-and adult-child relations and on adult learning and development, focusing on a dynamic process rather than a static role and, on all the social-contextual factors affecting parents, teachers, and children. Includes a large section on Ensuring That the Next Generation of Parents Is Prepared for Their Role.
