Ask the children : what America's children really think about working parents by Ellen Galinsky( Book )

15 editions published between 1999 and 2010 in English and held by 889 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Here is important news for the millions of parents struggling to manage work and family, says Ellen Galinsky in this extraordinary study--the first comprehensive study ever conducted that asks children and parents for their views on work and family life today. The responses she has gleaned from in-depth interviews and nationally representative surveys of children and parents are surprising, useful, and guaranteed to break the frantic cycle of guilt and stress that often traps parents." "Five years in the making, the Ask the Children study questions accepted thinking on such issues as quality time vs. quantity time, how mothers parent their children compared to fathers, how much children really know about the daily lives of parents at work, how much parents like their work, what messages we're sending children about work, and much more. For example, while many parents worry that they may not be spending enough time with their children, time is not at the top of children's lists when they are asked to name their one wish for changing how their parents' work affects their lives. And while the debate rages about whether mothers' working is good or bad for children, it turns out that children learn more about the world of work from their mothers than they do from their fathers." "For the first time, parents will hear children's perceptions and opinions--both reassuring and insightful--on these and many other topics. They'll see stereotypes blown and politically correct ideas challenged. They'll hear parents and children talking about what works to keep families close and why. They'll find practical advice for a better family life and a brilliant new set of operating principles to help them feel more in command and control at work and at home." "As the century closes on a generation of working parents, we have a unique opportunity to view how far we have come as families and to chart the course ahead. Ask the Children provides a positive basis for understanding our past and is a point of departure for our future. Book jacket."--Jacket

Education before school : investing in quality child care by Ellen Galinsky( Book )

3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 93 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents a comprehensive collection of information concerning different forms of child care, the quality and availability of care, the functioning of the child care market, and programs that the government uses to support this market. Following an introduction that outlines the negative consequences of splitting education and child care, chapter 1 of the book explains why child care issues are important and describes some demographic trends that will increase the demand for child care. Chapter 2 discusses the current state of the child care system and its biggest problems, ranging from the difficulties parents face in finding child care to the poor information available on child care options. The benefits that child care, particularly high-quality care, can bring to business, parents, children, and society are discussed in chapter 3. Chapter 4 explores the cost of providing higher quality child care and the choices that this cost requires, and Chapter 5 explores the private and public sector responses to child care problems, as well as the public's ambivalence toward child care. Chapter 6 presents suggested guidelines for the Quality Early Childhood Model, which includes (1) a network of programs that emphasize both care and education; (2) community-based child and family resource centers; and (3) a community-wide leadership group that would help weave together existing programs and expand them where needed.

Mind in the making : the seven essential life skills every child needs by Ellen Galinsky( )

6 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There are hundreds of books that give parents advice on everything from weaning to toilet training, discipline to nutrition. In spite of this overwhelming amount of information, there is very little research-based advice for parents on how to raise their children to be well rounded and achieve their full potential, helping them learn to take on life's challenges, communicate well with others, and remain committed to learning. These are the "essential life skills" that Ellen Galinsky has spent her career pursuing, both through her own studies and through decades of talking with dozens of the most outstanding researchers in child development and neuroscience. Mind in the Making is a truly groundbreaking book, one that teaches parents how to give children the most important tools they will need
