About the DVDs
With all the endless tasks of being a modern day parent, making sure you fit in daily quality time with your children can sometimes be a real struggle. Those lovely bonding times enjoyed in babyhood can all too easily take a back seat. Yet scientific research shows that special relationship times are as important for an eight year old as they are for your eight month year old, vital not only for bonding but for brain development. So my three DVDs in the Best Relationship with your Child series are designed to equip parents with tools, skills and practical ideas to strengthen their relationship with their child (from age 0 to 12) not just for now, but as an investment for life. Using the latest neuroscience research and illustrated throughout with delightful footage of parent-child quality time, the films are designed to support parent-child relationships in amazing ways. There are three in the Best Relationship with your Child series. They are called “ The First Five Years” “ Creative Quality Time’ and ‘ Age Five to Twelve”
What inspired me to create the DVDs?
