About this item

Contemporary Childhood brings readers up-to-date with the latest developments and keys issues from around the globe and explains 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 variety of issues affecting children around the world.
