Featuring full-color illustrations, Child, Family, School, Community: Socialization and Support is a comprehensive reference for education, sociology, human ecology, and psychology majors who want to understand how different groups influence children and their ability to relate socially. It is one of the best introductory books to socialization, especially, since author Roberta Berns used the highly effective Bioecological Model of Human Development by Bronfenbrenner in her approach. This student-friendly material also offers a discussion of controversial and sensitive subjects like culture- and ethnicity–related issues, gender and sexual orientation, as well as special needs. It features 12 well-organized chapters and starts with a section on the ecology of the child, followed by the ecology of socialization, family, and parenting. It tackles child care, school and teaching, peer groups, and the effects of mass media. The last three chapters talk about community, emotional and cognitive socialization, and social and behavioral socialization. The book was especially designed and developed for those planning careers in education, as well as other fields like sociology and psychology. It is also a supplemental material for those taking up courses in family relations, early childhood education, home economics, and even human development courses. Child, Family, School, Community: Socialization and Support (ISBN 9780495603252) was written by Roberta Berns, who also authored the previous editions of the book. Berns is an acclaimed professor at Saddleback College and the University of California, Irvine. Reputed developmental psychologist Urie Bronfenbrenner took the author under his wing when she was still a student at Cornell University, explaining her fascination with Bronfenbrenner's model, on which her approach to socialization was based.
