Guests are frequently world renowned, often entertaining, and always stimulating. The daughter of a terrorist discussed helping children reject hatred; a county executive related how he dealt with anxious residents during sniper attacks; a social worker (who is also a bereaved parent) provided encouragement and support for parents who have lost a child; and a psychologist with adult children in the armed forces discussed issues arising when soldiers return to their families.

Funded by the nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization of the same name, Parents' Perspective relies on individual contributions and corporate and foundation grants and awards to produce, edit, and distribute the programming.
