Two-Years-Old Social Competence.
Adcock, Don; Segal, Marilyn
This guide for parents discusses social competence in 2-year-old children, drawing upon anecdotal data to provide a sampling of 2-year-old children's social behavior and their parents' child rearing techniques. The data were collected from questionnaires, telephone interviews, and home visits in a 12-month study of the interactions of 86 2-year-olds and their families. Chapter I deals with aspects of everyday living such as ways of avoiding conflict; ways of resolving conflict; daily routines; dressing; washing up; housework; toilet training; and sleep time. In Chapter II, playing with siblings, playing with friends, styles of playing, and group experience are examined. Chapter III focuses on the child's increased awareness, including self-awareness, relating to others within and beyond the immediate family, and new discoveries. Throughout the guide, photographs are used liberally to illustrate the text. (JMB)
