The participant's guide goes along with the DVD, and is a great recap of each video segment, then has a Kid Talk session that is a list of questions, a Kid Kare section that allows you to plan to apply the lessons, a Closing Prayer, Kid Kare at home allows you to practice what you learn each week, and a Between the Scenes Reading (tells you what chapters to read in the book that week after the sessions.)
I was pleasantly surprised with this book. I've been looking for books on parenting and disciipline and this one is excellent. It gives the foundational principles of parenting, such as the principle of sowing and reaping. Worth every penny! I wish we had this when our own children were growing up. Now we will be using it with our grandchildren. One note - I did not realize there was a dvd or video that went with this book. This is a book probably normally used for group study and the video would be enormously helpful, I'm sure. I may purchase the DVD's next. Great resource!
This book is being used by the Home Group I am facillitating. It has already proved to be very useful in allowing us to follow along with the DVD & enhance our retention of the material presented through the questions & review of DVD content. It is written so that we all feel we are maximizing the most of our learning experience & we highly recommend this program for all who are blessed to be entrusted with the raising of children.
