Child Care and the Family.
Friedman, David B.; And Others
The booklet examines child care as a major resource for the prevention of child abuse, and is intended to bring child care and child abuse workers together. An introductory section on child abuse is followed by an update on the family, including historical perspectives and a case study illustrating cooperation of parents and day care staff. A section on child care includes information on the following topics: history of child care in the United States, types of child care, quality child care, attachment, babysitting, latchkey children, handicapped children, crisis child care, and the financial dilemma of child care. The role of child care in the prevention of child abuse is noted, and frequently asked questions about child care are answered. Suggestions are offered for starting a child care service, supporting child advocacy, and understanding the importance of volunteers. Among appended information are a list of related readings and tips on preventing child molesting. (CL)
