Sample video from Active Parenting for Stepfamilies

The stepfamily program kit contains 202 minutes of video scenes to help illustrate key points—and to keep participants engaged. Parents may see themselves in the entertaining video sketches featuring stepfamilies grappling with common issues. Presented with humor and empathy, each scene in the stepfamily parenting video presents a problem, and also offers an intelligent solution. Active Parenting for Stepfamilies contains the best video scenes from our popular Active Parenting Now and Active Parenting of Teens programs, along with all-new video that addresses stepfamily-specific issues and problems blended families encounter. DVDs are closed-captioned for the hearing impaired. Here's a sample scene from the stepfamily video:

Best practices make better parenting classes
According to "Parent Education to Strengthen Families and Reduce the Risk of Maltreatment," a 2013 publication of the US Department of Health and Human Services,

"Interactive methods, as opposed to didactic lecturing, are a key aspect of successful parent education programs and include activities such as group discussion, role playing, active modeling, homework exercises, and reviewing videos of effective parenting approaches (Brown, 2005)."

With video, activities, "show and tell," group discussion, and weekly Family Enrichment Activities (homework), Active Parenting for Stepfamilies meets all those requirements and more!
