Social Relationships & Friendships : Perceptions, Influences on Human Development & Psychological Effects Hardback
Edited by Melissa Bryant
Friendship has a positive impact on social and metacognitive skills, and many pedagogues and authors hypothesize that having friends can affect positively children's school performance.
In this book, an exploratory study conducted with young pupils to investigate the impact of friendship on cognitive engagement during several search information tasks.
The second chapter reviews recent research regarding the advantages of early years which focuses on enhancement and development of cognitive skills for pre-schoolers.
Studies of early education identifying a positive relationship between children's participation in early education settings and social outcomes are reviewed as well.
The authors of the other chapters review the impact of outdoor learning on social relationships (as well as for whom the learning experience did not positively impact their social relationships); the importance of social relationships and the challenges widows face, in particular older women widows; risk-taking activity, in particular, graffiti-writing to establish a status among one's peers; individual differences in the domains of reasoning and how early experiences can influence cognitive processes.
