Children and Broken Homes: Sources for the Teacher.
Bentley, Eloise
The depreciating attitude toward family life in our society has intensified in the past few years. It is not unusual to find substantial numbers of children in a first grade classroom who live in broken homes. Divorce is the answer for more young couples than ever before, and as a result the children involved must face growing up with a parent absent. A six or seven year old in such circumstances may come to believe that his situation is abnormal and that he is inferior to his classmates. This may create an emotional attitude which works against the normal learning process. A teacher properly prepared can counter this tendency be reassuring the pupil as to his acceptability and thereby enhance his receptivity to instruction. This annotated bibliography lists materials that provide an introduction to the problem, and insights into ways the young child may rise above his or her situation. They can be used by the teacher as classroom resources. (Author/NG)
