Remedial and Surrogate Parenting:
A Resource for Parents, Teachers, and Childcare Services
by Hollis L. Green
This book is a suitable syllabus for Human Development: The Early Years (Birth to Twenty) -- A study of physical, emotional, cognitive, social, moral/spiritual, and personality factors as they influence development through the life cycle stages (Birth to Twenty) in Family Life Education courses that require NCFR Criteria #3. Just like footprints, each child is different and age-specific care is required. Dr. Green's effort is to assure a positive and professional attitude among parents and others in child care, to provide sufficient knowledge of remedial development, and to provide basic guidance as to personal and professional behavior necessary to make parenting work in the home and with needy children in the custodial arena. It can be both a study and a reference guide for parents and personnel working in children's homes, and foster parents who pick up the slack in society when custodial care is not sufficient or government agencies are slow to respond to the needs of children.
