It provides practical advice from child experts, educators, and other parents who have "been there".
Many a conversational door will surely be opened due to this program, and once such conversations begin, it's up to parents and their kids to stay the course. My kudos to Connect with Kids for their efforts to create and now release on video such a fantastic series.
