DVD Review - Ruby's Studio: The Friendship Show
Join lovable host, Ruby, as she welcomes kids into her magical art studio for a day of creativity, fun, and friendship. With the help of adorable animated segments, art projects and inspired original music, this latest installment from the award-winning Ruby’s Studio series is sure to engage and delight young kids as well as serve as a helpful tool for parents who aim to raise kind, communicative, compassionate children.
With a curriculum guided by world-renowned parenting experts, "The Friendship Show" offers numerous social and emotional benefits for young children, including strengthening friendships through empathy, providing with tools to resolve conflict and confront bullying, and exploring the importance of The Golden Rule.
My Take on the DVD
The Mother Company has created a wonderful DVD for children to watch on friendship. I think it would be beneficial for an adult to watch it with the child so a discussion about the topics can occur after watching it.
The DVD explores the following topics: the important parts of friendship, why friends are important, how to make a friend, how to solve disagreements (conflict resolution), bullying and empathy. The lessons are done through animated characters which are involved in stories . The host, Ruby, extends the lessons through a discussion with children in her "magic studio".
There is music, singing, and a art project which can easily be done by your child. The emphasis is following the golden rule when it comes to treating our friends well and creating lasting friendships.
I feel this DVD could be used in a classroom setting as well as a home. To me the important part is Ruby gives the children and adults an avenue in which to discuss friendship. It seem there are more situations in which children are bullied by peers. I feel this one topic in this DVD could be an important one to open up discussions of feelings and conflict resolution. I encourage you to consider this DVD as a part of your family's video library.
