Answer the following questions.
Located the PDF BELOW of your reading for this week, J. Ronald Lally describes the ideal socialization goal as “a compassionate sense of wonder.” He states that the “goal for socialization and guidance of children under five is a concept that tries to encompass both the means and rights of the individual child and the needs and rights of all other living things.”
Behavioral goals for children should have the following attributes:
-confidence in self
-intellectual curiosity and interest
-a sense of deep connection with fellow humans and other living things
-a reverence for the planet
