[Prosocial Development of Very Young Children.]
Pawl, Jeree, Ed.
Zero to Three, v12 n4 Apr 1992
This newsletter presents five articles focusing on the social development of infants and very young children. The first article, "Sympathetic Behavior in Very Young Children," by Lois Barclay Murphy, gives examples of early sympathetic behavior, traces the development of sympathy, identifies individual patterns of sympathetic response, and considers sympathy in the physical and social context. The second article is "Shame, The Exposed Self," by Michael Lewis. It presents a structural model for defining self-conscious emotions, especially shame, and examines the development and socialization of shame. Next, Susan Crockenberg, in "How Children Learn To Resolve Conflicts in Families," looks at parent child interaction as conflict resolution, the effect of conflict on children's development, and implications for family intervention and research. "Social Development and Integration: Facilitating the Prosocial Development of Typical and Exceptional Infants and Toddlers in Group Settings," by Donna Wittmer and Sandra Petersen, illustrates and provides examples of specific strategies for helping children develop early social skills. The last article is "CHILDSPACE--Creating an Environment of Respect for Infants and Toddlers and Caregivers of Children." In it, Jane C. Warrent and others describe a 10-lesson curriculum for caregivers emphasizing the development of respectful social behaviors in very young children. References accompany each article. (DB)
