  1. Think about what you have learned about the authoritative style of caregiving. Then write a short scenario or script that demonstrates this style by depicting an early childhood professional interacting with a preschooler or a group of preschoolers. Designate where the professional is demonstrating responsiveness and where the professional is demonstrating demandingness.

  2. Put yourself in the role of a preschool teacher. One of the parents of a child in your class has become extremely frustrated with her child’s ability to pay attention. Based on what you have learned about perception in early childhood (pp. 65-71 in the course text), summarize what you would say to help the parent better understand her child.
  3. In your own words, explain why observation is an essential tool of child guidance. Use the readings and video programs to support your response.
