|"This set of DVDs gives the viewer sneak peeks inside the homes of actual parents struggling in every-day conflicts with their young children. You get a ring-side seat as the parents are interviewed by parenting expert, Carol Lynn Morse, Ph.D., and gently guided to think out more effective resolutions to each conflict situation. In conjunction with the accompanying “Viewer’s Guide” that comes with the DVDs, the basic principles of parenting become crystal clear. This is a wonderful program with great potential for parents and parent educators alike. I highly recommend it."

"Finally -- a comprehensive, positively-oriented, parenting education curriculum presented through state-of-the-art technology. Improving Parent-Child Relationships invites viewers to reach for new understandings and applications based on real life situations. On completion of the program, I found myself enriched as a mediator, father, trainer, and human being. An optimistic, much needed, and highly recommended package . . ."

|"This is a wonderfully comprehensive parenting curriculum that can capably serve as the foundation for court and agency parenting education programs. Few "face-to-face" parenting education efforts are of this quality and affordability. Courts and agencies can elevate what the offer and save money in the process."

"As the Family Services/Mental Health Specialist for Head Start of Lane County, I have found the "Parent and Child Interaction" video series to be a valuable tool in meeting the requirements of parenting education in our program. Through federally mandated performance standards for Head Start programs, we are required to provide such education to families with children involved in our program. The video series displays "true to life", "in the trenches" parenting scenarios in an informational and educational manner, which engages parents who struggle with similar issues in their own homes. Dr. Morse's questioning and discussion periods of parents in the scenarios, which follow each vignette are informative, engaging, and straight to the point tips for improving parenting skills, even for adults with literacy issues. I highly recommend these videos for any parent in need of learning, improving or adapting their existing parenting skills."
