“The text uses more of the specific strategies that are applicable when working daily with children. The information is accurate and speaks to children’s needs. It is important for adults to understand the children’s point of view: stressors, temperaments, type of caregiving under which children have been raised. This viewpoint is unique among texts. Most texts present material, concepts, strategies, etc. to “feed the students,” whereas M. Marion presents material with the child’s needs in mind. For once we have an author that practices DAP!”
-- Susan Christian, Patrick Henry Community College
From the Back Cover
Based on her belief that adults need to have realistic expectations of children, Marian Marion’s Guidance of Young Children emphasizes understanding young children’s development, using a developmentally appropriate approach to guidance, and thinking critically in making wise guidance decisions. Her conversational and direct writing style with concise definitions is a favorite of students and instructors alike. Content is grounded in research and experience.
With a case-study approach, case study analyses, rich examples on every page, and scenarios throughout the book and ancillaries, the entire Marion package provides students with a wealth of opportunities to observe how guidance is applied to situations involving infants through 8-year-olds and to apply theories and strategies themselves. Her conversational and direct writing style with concise definitions is a favorite of students and instructors alike, and the content is grounded in research and experience.
Among other things, after reading this text, students will understand:
- the difference between indirect and direct guidance,
- the major guidance theories and how they relate to guidance,
- the essential role of observation,
- adult guidance styles,
- how to minimize stress and create resilience,
- how to help students develop authentic self-esteem,
- how to help children manage anger,
- factors in violent behavior and aggression and how to prevent them,
- how to help children develop compassion, and
- how to help children with common challenging behaviors, such as biting, teasing, bullying, and disrespectful language.

I had to buy this book as part of a course that I am studying, but am now recommending it to anyone who has or deals with children.
One other thing, this book says that it is for use with children ages 2-8, but I really think that this is something that can be started while children are still infants, and carried on throughout their lives (I am currently using some of the strategies with my 16 yr old son).
