"This DVD is very well done. It explains the power of cliques, especially in the upper-elementary and middle school levels, and the importance of being yourself."

"My son loves this video. He really appreciates how following others is really "NOT COOL", and to be comfortable and proud with yourself even when others see that you're different."

Speaks to kids on their level

"Even in preschool, my daughter has experienced the effects of cliques, and I heard it really ramps up in kindergarten. So, in preparation for the next school year, I bought this video.

Trevor Romain is very good at making videos that appeal to children and speak to them on their level. We have the video about bullies and now this one about cliques. My kids are 5 and 7 and they love watching this video. They keep asking to watch it over and over. It helps me to open up a dialogue with them about what goes on in school and how to deal with it.

The lead character in the video tries to join a clique of girls, ignoring the kids who truly want to be her friends. She changes her clothes, her hair and even her name but finds that when it comes down to it, she has lost her identity and her new friends weren't really her friends at all. The message this video sends my kids is loud and clear: be yourself.

The weakness of the video is the clique accepts the main character, at least at first on an artificial level. I would like to see a video where the lead character wants to play with a clique that completely rejects her, having her pine to be their friend all the while ignoring kids who are good potential playmates, and thereby remaining friendless. That is a situation that really pains both children and parents.

Still I would recommend this video as a way to educate kids about certain social situations and to help kids talk to their parents about what's going on at school."
