The 2-part student workbook for mainstreamed learning and mentally disabled high school students contains 12 units intended to provide supplementary instruction in the Contemporary Parenting Choices Curriculum in the home economics class. This unit, the third in the Child Care part of the workbook, focuses on understanding parenting skills and includes individual lessons on how parents can help children grow and develop, why parents need to show love to their children, how parents can communicate with their children, how parents can guide their children's behavior, and some problems (such as child abuse and alcoholism) parents may have. Each lesson typically provides lesson objectives, definitions of key vocabulary terms, workbook activities, a brief discussion of the topic, and a review activity. The material is intended to be used with the special Teachers Guide and the other components of the Contemporary Parenting Choices Curriculum. (DB)
