For children to flourish and succeed in the 21st century, they must be able to problem solve, to develop resilience and handle stress, and to interact appropriately with peers and adults. While there is significant focus on the racial/ethnic and economic disparities in academic achievement and other cognitive outcomes, far less attention has been paid to the capacities that help build social and emotional skills. Drawing on national, state, and local data, the Urban Child Institute partnered with the RAND Corporation to explore the social and emotional well-being of children in Memphis and Shelby County, Tenn. The book highlights the essential factors in the home, child care setting, and community that contribute to social and emotional development in young children and provides a narrative around the importance of investing in efforts that have the potential to impact social and emotional development during the first few years of life. Through this book, UCI and RAND call for a dialogue on how to support the youngest citizens of the Memphis and Shelby County community, and catalyze action in this direction.
