Suggestions for effective parenting of preschool children are provided in 33 brief articles on children's feelings concerning self-esteem; fear; adopted children; the birth of a sibling; death; depression; and coping with stress, trauma, and divorce. Children's behavior is discussed in articles on toddlers' eating habits, punishment and preschoolers, whining, making friends, bedtime, good manners, interpersonal conflict, and friendship. Articles on children's learning focus on preparation for preschool, what preschoolers should be learning, first days of preschool, exercising choice, and questions about sex. Parenting is discussed in articles on assessing preschoolers' development, nudity at home, traveling with a preschooler, monitoring television viewing, parental disagreements about child rearing, the only child, chores, sex differences, stress, and children's wish to sleep in their parents' bed. Also included are ERIC digests on involving parents in the education of their children, the escalating kindergarten curriculum, praise in the classroom, the nature of children's play, creativity in young children, infant day care, and language development. Resource lists cite ERIC documents and journal articles on employer-supported child care, at-risk children, and school success.
