Child Labour : Dimensions & Determinations
N. Shukla
“Children are mirror, who reflect the future image of a nation. If anybody wants to see the nation he should see its children. If the children grows up properly then the nation will also grow up and if the exploitation of children was there then the nation will go in doom.” Child labour is a global problem. It is multi-dimensional and multi-layered in nature. The phenomenon of child labour, like all other social phenomena, is historically and socio-economic conditioned. It is related to multiple issues and situations. It is both a cause and consequence of vulnerabilities— poverty, illiteracy and livelihood loss. Its emergence, growth and nature of dynamics are intrinsically bound with the changing trends in production and reproduction of a social matrix. Child labour has become a common feature of any third world countries to which India is not an exception and despite adequate efforts in the direction of relief and rehabilitation, the problem continues to grow in an alarming proportion. If child labour is to be eradicated, the governments and agencies and those responsible for enforcement need to start doing their jobs. It is hoped that the volume will highly useful for students and scholars, academicians, professors, administrators, Social workers and NGOs, planners and policy makers.

Child Development
J. S. Mehta
In my view, development is best understood as a fusion of biological, social and psychological processes interacting in the unique medium of human culture. I have thus tried to show not only the role each of these factors plays but also how they interact in diverse cultural context to yield this striking similarities and important differences in individual children’s development because development involves transformations that take place overtime. I have adopted a chronological approach in our presentation. I begin with conception and trace the sequence of developmental changes from that instant in to infancy, childhood and adolescence. The Contents includes: • Scientific Study of Behaviour • Factors in Development • Physical and Motor Development • Socialization • Learning and Perception • Emotions and Motivation • Language • Cognitive Stage • Intelligence • Social Behaviour•MoralDevelopment • Personality • Self • Adolescence • The Child, Home, School & Peer Group • Appendix : The Nursery School • Glossary • Selected Bibliography ..more

Child Abuse
M. G. Pillai
A very important boon of the communication explosion as created by TV and other mass media is the awareness of the existence of child abuse on a large scale and the need to control and remedy it at the earliest to enable a child victim to grow up normally and without any neuroses and traumas that would not only affect his relationships with family and friends but also at the workplace. This book has been prepared with this awareness in view. Since child victims do not generally admit the abuse perpetrated on them or complain (the reasons are many) special effort has been made to investigate and explain the symptoms that could reveal the burden that a child is carrying in his mental framework. Chapters have been included to help in identifying the symptoms and also the remedial measures that can be taken to cure child victims of ‘faults’ they are not responsible for. Attention has also been paid to point out the preventive steps that should be taken while rearing children to ensure that they are not subjected to abuse of any kind-either from within the home or outside. It is with this aspect in mind and the need to not only identify the problem, but cure it when it exists, and preferably prevent it before it happens, that this book has been written. Its lucid and clear-cut chapters cover many myriad aspects. The contents include what is Child Abuse; Features of Sexual Abusers: Signs and Symptoms of Child Abuse; Sexual Coercion of the Child: Sexual Harassment: Prostitutes in Society: CO-operation with Parents: Working with Children: Play Therapy with Abused Children and Adolescents: and Helping to Prevent Abuse. Parents, teachers, counselors and all those connected with the handling of growing children will find this book useful in more ways than one. ..more

Violence Against Children
J. D. Patel
Child abuse and violence against children are two sides of the same coin. It is not a matter for the courts or the law and order authorities alone. It is necessary to invite public denunciation that confirms appropriate norms. Because of the stigma that attaches to conviction and punishment, the criminal law is believed to have a deterrent effect. However, this is not adequate to prevent either child abuse or violence against children. In this context, the old adage, 'Prevention is nine-tenths of the cure' comes to mind. This book tries to highlight all the probable kinds of violence that could be inflicted on a child, identification of the the potential victims as well as the potential culprits and the various factors that could lead to violence against children. It also traces the sources from where such violence could emanate and the preventive steps that could be taken. The chapters incude Child Abuse Defined; Female Perversion and Children; New Generation of Drug-Exposed Young Children: Maternal Violence Against Children; Killing of Children; and The Female Carer as Pervert. General readers, sociologists, child counsellors, teachers, and educationists and researchers in child development and child welfare will be able to add valuable insights to their own perceptions of the subject. It will help them guide their professional activity and also enhance their career skills. ..more

Sex Education in Child Development
K. R.Mathew
Sex Education in Child Development is a book that deals with a controversial subject but an important one that cannot be neglected or ignored. With information and knowledge having crossed all boundaries, it is highly imperative that a growing child be given the correct information about his or her sexuality and at the right time. It is immaterial whether this is done by the teacher or the parent, but it is important that whoever does it, does so in the correct manner. This book deals with the subject in such a way to make it easy for the teacher or parent to know what to tell a growing child and when. How to make him or her 'knowledgable' about his moods, his emotions and his body. And how to ensure that the child does not stray into the realm of half-baked knowledge garnered from friends, pornographic books and films and from other dubious sources. The chapters include Why Sex Education; Responsibility for Sex Education; Right Timing of Sex Education; Explaining Birth to Children; What is Sex Education; Sex Education Methods; Sex: Telling Children; The Questioning Child; Goals of Sex Education; Growing Up; The Ambit of Sex Education; The Influence of Home in Sex Education; Society’s Role in Sex Education; Associating Parents in Decision-Making; Sex Instruction in Schools In this context, this book is ideal for teachers, parents, researchers and those connected with the upbringing of children in any capacity. ..more

Rights of Children
B. Gopalkrishnan
That children are the citizens of tomorrow is not a debatable point. They have, therefore, a right to be educated, kept healthy, given care and affection and also justice and equality. Then only can they grow up into useful citizens of society. Unfortunately, in most countries all over the world, there is a sad lacking of awareness of children’s rights and, even sadder, a complete absence (with some rare exceptions) of ensuring that the child is given his lawful rights. An attempt has been made in this book to highlight what are the rights of the child, how he or she is deprived of them, and what exploitation takes place when children neither know their rights or can garner support to ensure that their rights are maintained. Areas that are of vital concern to the child, for example, education, health, social status and justice have been dealt with at length to enable the reader to be acquainted fully with the subject. Thus, this book is useful for sociologists, educationists, teachers, researchers, child specialists and all those entrusted with the care and upbringing of children, including parents. They can benefit largely in not only understanding all about children’s rights but also ensure its implementation by the concerned authorities and themselves. ..more

Child Development and Welfare Services
Sakshi Puri
Child welfare agencies in this country are suffering from over two decades of neglect and under-funding, which has eroded major sections of our country’s social services infrastructure. At the same time, there is a growing realisation that “business as usual” in many areas of child welfare is not adequate for strengthening families and protecting children. Yet, it is ironic that at a time when both public and private agencies are being swamped with referrals, cost-effective treatment strategies are being developed. It is a national disgrace that many child welfare staff members lack either the time or training to implement these service innovations. Within this context, this book examines major policy, practice and research issues as they jointly shape current child welfare practice and possible future directions. In addition to describing the major problems in the field of child welfare, the book highlights some of the service innovations that have been developed, which could be used to help address some of these challenges. The contents include Child Development: Orientation and Scope; Perspectives on Child Development Services; Child Welfare Services; Theory and Practice; Understanding the Policy Context for Child Welfare; Intake, Investigation and Risk Assessment in Child Welfare and Sociology of the Child Welfare Worker. There is also a Bibliography and Index. This book will be useful for students, teachers and researchers in Social Welfare, Sociology and Child Studies. ..more

Teaching Children with Learning Disabilities
Sushil Kumar Goel
This is undoubtedly an important issue of concern and a large number of teachers must be trained to provide remedial services to students with learning disabilities. Sensitization of teachers is the first step towards making schools realize the importance of paying attention to these children. These children find tremendous difficulties for open competitive employment due to lack of awareness and unhealthy attitudes of the society. They need appropriate vocational education and training support services and necessary help for placement. The comprehensive list of vocational trades suitable for children with learning disabilities has been provided in the book for the benefit of the readers. The objective behind this book has been to present a comprehensive picture of learning disability in a readily comprehensible, useful and supportive manner. Hopefully, this book will serve as an essential reference tool not only for professionals working in the field of learning disability but to the policy planners and administrators as well. It will also be a useful document for the parents, community members and the lay persons. This book will be a valuable addition in any library for B.Ed/M.Ed/Diploma in Special Education/M.A. Psychology/M.A. Education/MSW/MSc Child Development students in all Indian Universities. ..more

Teaching Children with Communication and Hearing Disorders
Sushil Kumar Goel
It is common knowledge that the Persons with Hearing Impairment have been badly neglected and discriminated, all over the world. They do have outstanding abilities which are hardly recognized and excluded from the mainstream of the society. Given appropriate education, training and opportunity, they can also contribute to the society for economic development of the country. A large number of such persons are intelligent and, if given the right opportunity and environment, they develop their capabilities through education and training. They can lead full and independent life. What they need is proper medical attention, special education, and rehabilitation facilities so that they are restored to the fullest physical, social, vocational, and economic fulfillment of which they are capable. “Catch them Young” is the Crux of success in the education, vocational training and overall rehabilitation of the children with hearing impairment. To achieve the cherished goal of rehabilitation of hearing handicapped, we have to strengthen early diagnosis and evaluation system, reduce the catchment age, provide fitment services of hearing aids, improve and upgrade the educational setups and create more avenues for vocational training. This book will be a valuable addition in any library for B.Ed/M.Ed/Diploma in Special Education/M.A Psychology/M.A Education/MSW/MSc Child Development students in all Indian Universities. ..more

Child Labour in India
R. P. Yadav
Children are the important assets of the society. Every child has the right to enjoy his childhood. They have the right to education, play, recreation and development of their personality. But it is ‘harsh reality’ of the global society that out of 153 crore children, about 25 crore are ‘Child Labour’. They are working in hazardous, most worst forms and other works. Virtually it is a matter of gross violation of ‘Child Rights’. The concentration of child labourers in India is highest in the world. This harsh reality of the society is fostered by many socio-economic and cultural factors. In India, state intervention to eliminate child labour have been basically of two types—the ‘legislative interventions’ and the ‘welfare interventions’. More than 4000 ‘Special Schools’ are active in 100 child labour endemic districts spread over 13 states of India. Such schools are educating and rehabilitating more than 2 lakhs child labourers. The present book is a honest effort in this regard just to present a ‘comprehensive picture’ about the complex and gigantic problem of child labour in India. The book is a collection of 19 academic and research papers contributed by many scholars from different universities of India. The papers are grouped into following four sub parts. Part I Child Labour : General Issues Part II Child Labour : Causes, Conditions and Forms Part III Child Labour : Regional Studies Part IV Child Labour : Combating Child Labour This book will be useful for students, academicians, researchers, NGOs, trade unions and governmental agencies. ..more

Women’s Empowerment in India
S. NayakJ. Nair
This book traces the evolution of Indian women through the mists of history to the present efforts to empower them and give them their rightful place in society. Attempts in this direction have not been dramatic or aggressive but rather after the old Indian fashion of combining chance with continuity. It was Gandhiji who brought a dramatic chance among our women, when at his bidding they came out in large numbers from the shelter of their homes to take their part in the struggle for India's freedom. Once the old shackles were removed, it was no longer possible to replace them in the same way. Attempts were no doubt made to go back, but they were bound to fail. This book brings much information, which will enlighten the reader's mind and give him and idea of what our women have done and are doing. ..more
