One of the things that parents strive for is the best for their children. Parenting is one of the toughest jobs (if not the toughest) and sometimes trying to have the best relationship with your child can be difficult. There are an array of different factors that can play a part in making your relationship difficult from a clash of personalities to a lack of knowledge on how to do the best for your child.

The DVDs discuss the science behind childhood brain development and the benefits of play and games with parent-child bonding.
