A complete guide to parenting from birth to five

Finally, a comprehensive DVD that can help you make the best of the first weeks, months and years of your child’s life. The Raising Children DVD — five hours of content — is packed with all the basics about your newborn, baby and child — what they need and what makes them tick.

Tips from over 85 celebrity and other parents

Sometimes the best parenting information comes from those who have walked in your shoes — other parents. It helps to know you’re not alone; there are other parents out there who are going through the same things and have some helpful insights.

Dave Hughes recaps each section with wit and charm

At the end of each chapter of the DVD, comedian Dave Hughes writes up the key points on a whiteboard. We’ve collected Dave’s bullet points and turned them into PDFs. You may like to print them out to use as handy reminders.

Practical demos

You can find and watch 16 different demos on the DVD, including a breastfeeding demo, safe bathing for a newborn, fitting a car seat and even 17 ways to encourage good behaviour.

Expert information

All of the information in the DVD, no matter who is saying it, has been reviewed and approved by the Raising Children Network and a panel of independent experts. The DVD content is based on the RCN website content, with the highest level of quality assured for an online parenting resource.
