About This Resource

Parenting Wisely (PW) is a parenting skills education system. The PW programs are designed to facilitate the learning of necessary skills for the healthy well-balanced raising of children from age 3 to 18. Proven to reduce problem behaviors and increase communication and family unity, PW offers well documented and tested programs that guarantee results. Available in either CD-ROM or online formats, PW's interactive format encourages maximum skill retention. Parents choose from ten different video enactments of typical family struggles, from teenagers playing loud music to trouble in school and more. After viewing the conflict, users must choose from a list of options representing different levels of effectiveness. Each behavior is portrayed and then critiqued through an interactive question and answer session. The in-depth tutorials highlight the parenting skills depicted and give further insight into beneficial behavior. Each session is then concluded with a quiz, further engraining the information.
