Drawing on the author's 25 years in early childhood education, Guiding Young Children: A Problem-Solving Approach introduces future childcare providers and preschool teachers to a child-centered philosophy of education and care. The problem-solving approach encourages "kids to do what kids do" as they learn to take responsibility for their words and actions. Through real-life examples, sample dialogues, and numerous photographs and posters, the problem-solving approach is explained, stressing environment first, then progressing to listening skills, negotiating, conflict resolution, and setting limits.
