According to child behavior experts, one in three people abused as a child will also use physical force on her or his own children.
This program spotlights three primary caregivers of one or more young children – a 63-year-old grandmother, a 36-year-old mother, and a 29-year-old father – who are hoping to beat those odds by taking part in a mentoring program for at-risk caregivers called Parent Aide.
The people in this DVD are filmed at their worst – and also at their best as they begin to apply the new behavior-modification techniques to the childrens actions as well as their own.
The program features commentary by Alan Kazdin, director of the Yale University Parenting Center and Child Conduct Clinic and author of The Kazdin Method for Parenting the Defiant Child.
