Moving Into the Outside World

During the first 3 years, children's long-term developmental trajectories are established, and the quality of parenting the child receives on a daily basis profoundly influences these trajectories. The transition to parenthood is a difficult one for many parents, however, and can lead to parental stress and a lack of parenting competence and confidence. The video vignettes contained in Parenting: The First Three Years - Support Videos enable parenting educators and home visitors to more efficiently address a wide range of key child development topics.

This wonderful DVD will be helpful to parents by providing brief visual depictions of responding supportively to a wide range of situations that commonly occur in infancy and early childhood, the years that shape the person who is developing.
