About the Author

Martha B. Bronson, EdD, is Associate Professor of Developmental and Educational Psychology at Boston College, where she directs the early childhood program.


'Masterfully written... Bronson has done a thorough job of pulling together research from many perspectives. The strength of this work is in its synthesis and connections to the major ideas in both developmental and educational psychology. The book's predictable organization makes it a handy resource guide for anyone working with children from birth to age eight. Bronson's writing style facilitates clarity of understanding... [Her work] holds promise for changing how we think about and educate young children, and provides insight into some of the difficulties we face in educating today's students.' - Early Childhood Research Quarterly 'Setting Bronson apart from most scholars are her astute observational skills and years of experience with what early childhood teachers and caregivers actually do on a daily basis. Informed by a solid familiarity with early childhood and primary school contexts, this book synthesizes the knowledge base and provides excellent coverage of practices that support children's self-regulation at various age levels.' - Carol Copple, PhD, National Association for the Education of Young Children 'Bronson engages her reader with a style that is clear without compromising the subject's complexity. This is a scholarly yet readable account for a broad audience. It will serve as a useful text for advanced undergraduate and graduate-level students.' - Deborah Stipek, PhD, School of Education, University of California, Los Angeles"
