Bradwell, John; And Others
Designed for use by community education coordinators, elementary classroom teachers, PTA workers, school volunteers, and parents, this guide offers suggestions about ways to unite the school and the home in efforts to help children learn. The first section discusses the expanded role of the community education coordinator in parenting programs and activities; offers "do's" and "don'ts" for parenting education programs and working with parents and communities; and describes community education parenting classes and meetings. Discussion for parents focuses on how children learn and how parents can help them learn; basic skills children need which parents can help them develop; development of a child's self-concept; and the process of coping with conflict between parent and child. Activities and exercises that parents can use with their kindergarten, primary school, and elementary school-age children are described. Related materials are appended. A Bibliography of Parenting Materials contains about 150 references in the categories of films; books, pamphlets, and articles on parent-teacher relationships; parental activities for improving children's behavior, self-concept, and academic success; questions and evaluations; single parent families; parent involvement programs in Alabama and around the nation; total family living; and the use of volunteers.
