    Kersey and Masterson's 101 Principles for Positive Guidance with Young Children is a reference tool, a guide, a handbook, and more for creating responsive teachers who foster respectful relationships through responsive teacher-child interactions and strength-based guidance strategies that promote emotional competence, self-regulation, and social and academic success for children. In 10 accessible chapters, educators will be forever changed by the impactful content addressing creating a caring community, guiding behavior, showing respect, giving nurturance, fostering independence, building resilience, preventing misbehavior, creating solutions to common behavior challenges, building bridges with families, and creating positive change. Multicultural and cross-cultural contexts are fully-integrated, with particular efficacy for children at-risk, English language learners, and those working in diverse and inclusive classrooms. Relational and practical solutions for working with parents in the most constructive and caring manner are also addressed and will help educators learn to build bridges between home and school. Using lively and accessible prose, the authors have written a truly user-friendly workbook with a seamless link between research and practice. The techniques presented are effective and practical, addressing every aspect of classroom guidance for young children. [Summary from Syndetic Solutions]
