Instructions for viewing Play Nicely at home

Anyone can view the online program or order the handbook at home. Print the one-page handout that describes the program and give it to parents.

The handouts are available in English and Spanish.

Consider the following script to introduce the program: "Assume that you see one young child hit another. What are you going to do? We would like all parents to learn healthy ways to respond to this situation. Here is a handout that describes a resource that works really well to teach some of the better options. There is a free online program and a handbook."

View as many as you like."
