A powerful examination of the vital link that is primarily responsible for the repetition of both physical and emotional child abuse from one generation to the next. This program contains personal revelations concerning the core issues involved in the mistreatment of children. Dr. Robert Firestone interacts with a group of parents, and their honest responses illustrate the personality dynamics underlying the perpetuation of this damaging cycle. This is a valuable public service program for clinicians, parents, and perspective parents. â€œAt the bottom line in our treatment of children is the quality of the experience we provide. This film makes this point clearly and unequivocally. It is a significant contribution to our field.â€ â€“ James Garbarino, PhD, Author and Director, Family Life Development Center, Cornell University. Winner, Chris Plaque Award, Columbus Film Festival.
