Abstract/Notes: Presents excerpt from Kohn's 1990 book, asserting that parents are most important to children and need to project a positive view of life. Argues that caring, the absence of physical punishment, guiding and explaining, cooperating, and taking children seriously are required to offset the pressure and negative values that a competitive culture introduces into child rearing.

Effects of Variations in the Nursery School Setting on Environmental Constraints and Children's Modes of Adaptation

Available from: JSTOR

Publication: Child Development, vol. 42, no. 3

Pages: 839-869

Abstract/Notes: This study asked how specific characteristics of preschool settings affect the naturalistic occurrence of environmental constraints and children's adaptations to them. A taxonomy of 7 varieties of constraints invented by Jackson and Wolfson (1968) and a taxonomy of 14 adaptations were used. The constraints conformed to Schoggen's (1963) definition of conflict environmental force units (conflict EFU). 2 middle-class nursery schools and 2 Head Start programs were studied. These environments enabled the effects of several ecological variables- structure of the daily program, spaciousness of the schoolroom, and teacher-children ratio-and several personal variables-age, sex, and social class -on the incidence of conflict EFU and adaptations to be determined. Differential linkages of the adaptations with varieties of conflict EFU were also examined. The environmental variable which differentiated preschool settings was the program structure, and significant effects for age, sex, and social class were also found.
