Controversial Issues in Child Development.
Pilling, Doria; Pringle, Mia Kellmer
This review of child development research (primarily British and American) is organized around three major themes: the parental role and women's liberation; the role of educators in enhancing or hindering the life chances of pupils; and the problems of disadvantagement and the feasibility of intervention to prevent, minimize or eliminate its long term consequences for children's development. The subjects chosen for review are: (1) the impact of very early life experiences (social attachments, early environmental experiences, and quality of interaction between children and their caretakers) on development; (2) the effects of sharing the care of young children during the infancy, preschool and school age stages of development; (3) the role of the father in the family; (4) the effects of teachers' expectations on pupils' performance; and (5) effects of disadvantagement and intervention on the health and intelligence of young children.
