Within the learning context of the classroom, the girls and boys share their experiences of self, emotional understandings, and social relations through interviews and social cognitive tasks. The chapters provide scholarly analysis and practical information for those who agree that emotions are paramount to childrens comprehensive development. The book concludes by describing the practical implications and applications of its findings for parents, teachers, and caretakers of children, including how to help children learn about and negotiate emotions in themselves and in their interactions with others.
