This two-part video program, completely in Spanish, shows parents the importance of their involvement with the school and with the development of their children's skills and attitudes. In Part I (20 minutes), parents learn that they are their children's first and most influential teachers. Specific strategies are offered for creating an achievement-oriented home environment and for rewarding and reinforcing positive behavior and success. In Part II (19:40 minutes), parents discover how to build the self-esteem of their children in order to promote and sustain achievement in school. Also included are suggestions on communicating with and supporting the efforts of teachers and the school. (RS)
