Focus on Infants and Toddlers, v13 n1-4 Fall 2000-Sum 2001
These four quarterly newsletter issues address various topics of interest to child caregivers. Each issue includes articles on a specific theme, along with regular news or a column by an AECI Executive Board vice president. The Fall 2000 issue focuses on the special features and unique concerns of employer-sponsored child care, with one article discussing the development of the child care center at Brookhaven National Laboratories and another article exploring the administrator's role in building relationships with families in employer-supported programs. The Winter 2000 issue concerns cultural differences in child rearing practices. One article provides a mother's account of her experiences as a first-time mother from New Hampshire living in the Dominican Republic. The second article compares one mother's experiences with toilet training her children in China and the United States. Both articles express appreciation of the challenges and rewards of cultural differences and offer insights into how they negotiated those differences. The Spring 2001 issue offers some perspectives on helping young children learn to regulate their own behavior and get along with others, highlighting the primary importance of respecting young children. Articles focus on promoting prosocial behavior in the classroom and using timeout effectively. The Summer 2001 issue focuses on the use of computers with toddlers and includes articles on parents' beliefs and practices, when to introduce children to computers, and educators' recommendations regarding using computers with very young children.
