Families are Different and Alike explore how contemporary society has come to recognize a broad range in the structure of families. But whether a family is one- or two-parent, blended or extended, each of its members has to find ways to get along together, to solve its problems and to deal with major changes. This insightful program is designed to show young people that they are not alone in their experiences, while enabling them to gain a useful understanding of ways families satisfy common needs and accommodate individuality. It demonstrates the importance of sharing feelings about change and illustrates a variety of different reactions to change. “Genuine perspectives on the importance of cooperation and mutual respect. Very useful.”—Booklist. Produced by Take Ten Productions. A Coronet release.
