Education for Effective Parenthood: Children Are Our Business.
Hughes, Kathryne Sheehan, Comp.
This issue of the "Teachers of Home Economics" brings together suggestions for initiating an effective parenthood education program centered about a laboratory for the young child and suggestions for planning comprehensive home economics instruction on human growth and development. Described are examples of successful school programs that have included nursery laboratories and have found them of value in educating youth for their potential roles as parents. Although the issue is not intended to be a "techniques" manual, it includes usable guidelines for the teacher who plans a nursery laboratory in conjunction with a parenthood education program. Included in the "Resources" section is a variety of reference materials that will help both teachers and students in their study of human growth and development. (Author)
