Parenting Works!
Raising Pre-School Children

4 Volume Set - Ages 13 - Adult - $325.95 - 6 full hours

The acclaimed PBS series - now a 4-volume video set (13 segments 27 minutes each) - teaches parents of pre-school children how to successfully navigate the most common parenting challenges, from bedlam at bedtime to choosing a responsible babysitter.

Each entry opens with footage of a real family struggling with a parenting challenge. Then, through lively discussion, real-life vignettes and appropriate exercises, nationally respected parent educator Milton Creagh guides parents toward a positive solution. Spanish Version also available.

Videos can stand alone or be part of a COMPLETE PARENTING COURSE! In addition to the videotapes, each Parenting Works! series includes a facilitators guide and a parent's guide.
