Summary "Tying together the theory and practice of child guidance and behavior in clear and accessible ways, this book provides educators and caregivers actionable best practices to teach children healthy emotional and social development. Using contemporary brain research, vignettes, and discussion questions, this book gives you the tools and strategies to reduce the increasing expulsion rate in early childhood, understand how stress effects children's self-regulation, and help even the most at-risk children thrive. A great strategy to help reduce the increasing expulsion rate, Dan Gartrell's guidance practices teach children to express strong feelings well, solve problems in creative ways, accept differences, and think ethically and intelligently. Use this book to empower children and to never give up on any child"
