Description

Using the examples of attachment theory and language development, part one of this book elaborates a cultural approach to early development. Part two considers children's emerging capacities for empathy, perspective taking and social understanding, exploring how young children negotiate, talk about and play out relationship themes. The way children learn through relationships is examined in Part three - which covers topics such as "scaffolding" learning, and how children learn to collaborate with each other. Part four returns to the issue of cultural variation, asking how far textbook accounts of early social relationships reflect particular cultural beliefs and practices, and taking examples from such diverse contexts as Cameroon, Guatemala, Italy, Japan and the United States.
