Three films on the effects of a new baby in the family and child rearing: The Third Person: How a couple's expectations of parenting clash with reality during the three months following the birth of their first child, contrasting the myths with reality--a mixture of love, fear, frustration, and satisfaction (18 min. 25 sec.); Post Partum Depression: Nearly twenty percent of new mothers experience post-partum depression. This film shows how family relationships can suffer from the responsibilities and pressures of a new baby, and how counselling and group discussions can help alleviate the emotional stress (25 min. 7 sec.); and Children of the Tribe: Parenting and education in Japan are in striking contrast to Western approaches. In examining Japanese family life and child-rearing practices, this film also illustrates the two seemingly contradictory elements of Japanese society--great competitiveness and great dependence on the group (27 min. 59 sec.).
