Michigan State University researchers Kendal Holtrop and Amol Pavangadkar partnered with the Michigan Parent Management Training — Oregon model (PMTO™) program to develop a series of short, research-based parenting videos accessible to parents and caregivers across the state of Michigan.

To help families during the "Stay Home, Stay Safe" order during the COVID-19 crisis, the program is designed to foster healthy parent-child relationships, and to empower parents by providing tools that build off strengths they already have. The videos focus on three key parenting strategies: clear directions, emotional regulation and skill encouragement.
