DescriptionThough the emphasis in American life is upon dramatic social change, the firmer reality is our great continuity in social behavior and institutions. For example, though many strategies of child rearing have cycled through human society, the basic problems and responsible social unit remain the same. Of necessity, children have an ordered and holistic view of nature and the urban places where they live. We, in the people-thinking trades, can learn much if we are willing to listen before we prescribe.
