Contemporary Childhood

Sean MacBlain,

Contemporary Childhood
 

About the eBook

This brand new textbook brings you up to date with all the latest developments and keys issues from around the globe, and helps you understand how these changes are impacting on practice in early years and primary classrooms.

 

Key issues in contemporary childhood are explored through three sections on The Child, The Family, and Emerging Trends, with topics including:

 

  • the ‘Digital Child’ and the rise of new technologies
  • children’s security and the impact of poverty, austerity and conflict
  • children’s happiness, mental-health and wellbeing
  • the changing nature of families including LGBT homes, refugees, and asylum seekers
  • the challenges of multi-agency working

 

The pace of change in early childhood can be daunting, but this book helps students and practitioners understand the huge variety of issues affecting children in the UK and all over the world.


Sean MacBlain will be discussing key ideas from Contemporary Childhood in the SAGE Early Years Masterclass, a free professional development experience hosted by Kathy Brodie.
