This discussion guide coordinates with the first 20 films in a series intended for use by leaders in working with parents, prospective parents, childcare workers, and students of child development within civic groups, church groups, and other community organizations concerned with the welfare of children. It is designed to aid leaders in helping others interpret the film series and apply the messages to their own lives. The core of each film program is a 20 minute drama followed by a summarizing documentary segment. Five families representing distinct backgrounds alternate as the central focus of the dramas. Each unit consists of background information, a bibliography related to the program theme, a parent information sheet, a list of characters in the drama and synopses of both sections of the film, discussion questions related to the major learnings of the film, and discussion questions and related comments designed to help group members relate the program learnings to their own experiences.
