Presented are proceedings of a conference designed to increase awareness, knowledge, and feelings of competency of adults who work with children, with particular emphasis on the positive aspects of child rearing and practical suggestions for daily activities and interactions.

Turner); "The Child from Three to Five" (M. Durrett and P. Richards); "Preparing Children for Reading" (K. Wallingford); "Legal Aspects of Custody and Divorce" (J. Lewallen); "The Role of the Father" (R. Espinoza); "Musical Activities for Body Movement" (W. Nelson); "A Kid's Eye View of Exceptionality" (J.
