The First Three Years: A Guide to Selected Videos for Parents and Professionals.
To promote healthy child development, parents and other caregivers need a variety of supportive resources. In order to assist parents and professionals, a coalition of organizations conducted an independent, comprehensive review of the child development video market and produced a list of selected titles for professionals and parents of young children. The resulting guide presents review information for more than 50 videos in a variety of areas. The reviews are divided into the following areas: (1) Child Development--understanding and encouraging healthy development, newborn care, early relationships, and communication, learning, and play; (2) Health and Safety--immunizations and medical care, home safety and first aid, and feeding and nutrition; and (3) Parenting and Family--adjusting to parenthood, discipline and coping, relationships with siblings, and child care providers. Each entry includes a description, critique, and summary of salient points, including ordering information. The guide concludes with an explanation of research methods and a chart of key points for viewers. (HTH)
