The situations presented in Off Road Parenting are as close as you can get to real-life parenting situations. After viewing the real-life family stories on DVD, you can direct those stories yourself and evaluate what happens --a valuable tool offering the benefit of 'advance experience.' In addition, stories relating to specific age groups may be selected for review.
Cartoons from the "Stone Soup" group -- a highly 'off-road' family -- were chosen to be part of the Off Road Parenting book as they express with laughter the surprises, angst, anger and love that are part of real families everywhere.
Parenting can be like driving off-road; parents often find themselves faced with unexpected, often alarming situations. Take heart. This unique book and DVD combo enlightens and reassures. Like off-road drivers, you too, can call upon experience, tools and technique and get back on track.
Book:128 pages. DVD Running Time: Approximately 45 minutes. The time is determined by the path chosen as a parent works their way through the menus.
Public Performance Rights are required if using the book and DVD in a classroom or group-training session. The cost is $99.00. Please call 1 (800) 777-6636 for more information
