Programs for Parents of Preschoolers: Parent Group Activities Designed to Broaden the Horizons of Young Children.
Cansler, Dorothy P., Ed.
The program materials in this book are offered as a resource for group meetings with parents of preschool children. Fourteen units are provided, each focusing on a different topic. Topics include the development of the child's self-image, language abilities, and physical movement abilities. Some units provide guidelines for story reading and story telling with children, for helping children cope with stress, for meeting children's nutritional needs, and for cooking with children. Other units discuss carpentry activities, techniques for teaching children at home, religious education for young children, nature discovery activities, self-expression through creative drama, art, and music. Each unit consists of a statement of objectives, introductory content material, discussion questions, program format ideas, lists of media resources, and suggestions for further reading. Introductory content materials for each unit are designed to be duplicated and used as handouts which parents may keep. Since the units provided do not constitute a comprehensive curriculum for parent education, a "cookbook" approach toward unit selection is recommended. (RH)
