Emotional Development and Delay: The Child in the Context of the School Environment.
Pendleton, Vicki Mitchell
The paper reviews the interaction between a young child and the school environment in the development of emotional and behavior problems. Research on empathy development, the impact of the teacher-child relationship, and effects on self concept of social relationships with peers are considered. The origin and achievements of the Child and Family Mental Health Project, designed to promote social and coping skills as well as positive self concepts in Head Start project children are examined. General categories of emotional problems in preschool children are seen to include difficulty in impulse control, inordinately strong anxiety, poor social skills, and extreme withdrawal or depression.
