Honig publishes new book with insights from 30-plus years experience
Alice Sterling Honig, professor emerita of child development in the College of Human Ecology, has developed “Little Kids, Big Worries: Stress-Busting Tips for Early Childhood Classrooms,” a new guidebook for early childhood professionals to help them address the most common causes of stress in a young child’s life, from separation anxiety and bullying, to jealousy and family circumstances. Honig’s book is a practical tool that helps professionals not only identify stress in young children but gives them the information they need to intervene in these situations with proven relief strategies before pressures turn into major problems. Her new book offers memorable stories and down-to-earth, easy-to-use ideas, giving professionals tools to conquer stress in any early childhood setting—so children can develop the early social and academic skills they’ll need to succeed in school.
