Free Classroom Video “The Game”

COPE24 is providing this free downloadable video as a thank you to all who are trying to educate our youth on the responsibilities of parenting. Shaken baby (SBS) or severe head trauma is a form of child abuse easily prevented. I have spent the last several years in your classrooms talking about the challenges of dealing with a crying baby. This is a game that I have played in classrooms across the nation after presenting information to students about how frustrating this situation is. How easy it is for us to have this thought and how damaging and life altering this one moment can be. I wish that I could visit every school in the nation but that isn’t realistic. I have ended my presentation by playing this game with your students. I always get the same response no matter if the students are seniors or freshmen or if it is at the beginning or end of the semester. Now you can show this video to them. I recommend you stop the video after every question so that you can hear and see your own students responses.

Videos give me the opportunity to reach so many more students than possible in person. While at our website please take the time to look at trailers of our other reality-based documentary videos. Thank you to all educators who see the tremendous value in in making parenting, child development and family relations education a priority. Creating healthier parents will lead to healthier families, healthier communities and a healthier nation.

COPE24 Parenting Skills Program for Child Welfare Workers, Foster Care Agencies, Hospitals and Community Groups

Call 314-488-3766 or email Rene Howitt for set-up, purchase and pricing.

What does the program include?

We’ve taken 10 very common frustrating parenting situations and put them into a program, so that we can begin discussing with our youth the realities of parenting. This program includes:

  1. Teacher/Instructors manual meeting all national curriculum standards
  2. Manual also includes student worksheets and pre/post student surveys
  3. 10 parenting scenario videos. Each parenting video situation is approx. five-minutes in length. There is one video situation for each of the 10 chapters of this program

The teacher/instructor would begin the class by showing one video. Each scenario will escalate to the point of abuse, neglect, or dysfunction. The video is then stopped and the teacher/instructor can turn to class asking….what went wrong? What other choices did the parents have? What will you do?
