Do we see childhood for what it really is? Are we ready to challenge our ideas and put on a new pair of spectacles? Emily Plank joins us for the second in a series of discussions about her book, The Culture of Childhood. In this episode, we discuss the concept of friendship in early childhood, the tricky task of entering play, and how adults can better support authentic social growth.
Notes from the Show:
Food for Thought. Patience or Understanding? By Nancy Weber-Schwartz, Young Children, March 1987. (I couldn’t find a link for this, but this is the article I referenced reading in grad school. Can be located through ERIC here.)
