14 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 363 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Children' s play throughout history has been free, spontaneous, and intertwined with work, set in the playgrounds of the fields, streams, and barnyards. Children in cities enjoyed similar forms of play but their playgrounds were the vacant lands and parks. Today, children have become increasingly inactive, abandoning traditional outdoor play for sedentary, indoor cyber play and poor diets. The consequences of play deprivation, the elimination and diminution of recess, and the abandonment of outdoor play are fundamental issues in a growing

Understanding and nurturing infant development by Monroe D Cohen( Book )

3 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This publication contains six papers presented at the 1975 Texas Conference on Infancy. The papers present discussions of (1) intervention studies and programs for infants and families, (2) the interaction between infants and their caregivers, (3) mutual adaptation of mother and child, (4) discontinuous mothering, and (5) the emergence of self-concept. Also included is an abstract bibliography of recent infant research. "Intervention and Infant Education" traces the evolution of government programs for infants and families through the past ten years. "Competent Infants and Their Caregivers: The Feeling Is Mutual" discusses the development of competence through interaction with self, others, and inanimate objects. Ideas about ways infants learn, and descriptions of real life behaviors are presented to help caregivers understand the dynamics of developmental changes. "Reciprocal Interactions Between Infants and Mothers" explores the mutual adaptation of mother and child. It is proposed that the quality of feedback from the infant's actions influences the quality of his motivation for subsequent interaction and his competence in getting what he needs or wants. "Discontinuous Mothering - Expanding the Alternatives" reviews statistics associated with discontinuous mothering, describes its effects on children, and presents some alternatives. The need for quality caregiving is identified as a national problem, involving comprehensive economic, political and social factors. "Roots in Infancy for Later Development" points out the importance of self-concept in the development of a competent, healthy adult. (Author/SB)

Cause and prevention of playground injuries and litigation : case studies by Joe L Frost( Book )

2 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study examined 187 playground injuries and 13 fatalities that resulted in lawsuits between 1981 and 1995, taken from the files of two expert witnesses on playground safety who testified in the cases. The data are presented by geographic location, nature of injuries, cause of injuries/fatalities, playground equipment implicated, location of injury/fatality, age of children, gender of children, and violations of safety specifications. Eighty-one percent of the cases in the study were settled out of court, 9 percent went to trial, and 10 percent are in progress. An analysis of the case indicates that playground lawsuits are growing rapidly in the United States, that most cases involve serious or fatal injuries, and that most injuries are due to falls from common playground equipment, such as slides, swings, climbers, merry-go-rounds, horizontal ladders, and fire poles. The study recommends that schools, day care facilities, and other entities with playground facilities follow closely the specifications and standards set forth by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (cpsc) and the American Society for Testing and Materials (astm) in order to avoid injuries and costly litigation. (Contains 8 references, a list of recommended resources, and 11 figures.) (Mdm)
