Caring for Young Children in the Home.
Birckmayer, Jennifer; And Others
Group leaders of 10- to 13-year-olds may use this program guide to help the preteens interact with young children through six discussion meetings and five visits with a preschool child at home. Discussion topics concern (1) the family environment of young children, (2) children's play; (3) children's play areas at home, (4) safety at home, (5) daily routines with young children, and (6) discipline and child guidance. Each topic begins with specific objectives followed by sections providing material for discussion, activities reinforcing the discussion, and activities for preteens to do with a preschooler prior to the next meeting. In addition, resource materials for leaders are provided, including a discussion of the importance of understanding child development, a list of activities for preschoolers at home, guidelines for choosing children's furniture, ways of facilitating play for young children at home, a list of hazards to young children at home, ways of helping children with daily routines, and ways of disciplining children so that they are helped to gain self-control.
