Coping strategies from nurse and midwife Gráinne Ryan take into account medical conditions, sibling dynamics, job circumstances, single-parent situations, and other factors. 7-part series, 24-25 minutes each.

Very well done, with clear, direct explanations of the major issues. The families are genuine and likeable, and Ms Ryan is an engaging host.... Good addition to public libraries with parenting collections. Recommended.”  —Educational Media Reviews Online
