The Purple Family video was created for divorcing parents and their children and is a key part of the Kids First program. It provides insight on difficult issues that arise when separation occurs. In the video, all family members live in a world that is purple, a balanced mixture of red and blue. But as signs of separation appear, husband and wife and all surroundings turn distinctly red or blue.To purchase "The Purple Family" DVD, fill out the PURPLE FAMILY VIDEO/DVD ORDER FORM (PDF) and mail it, along with your check, to the Kids First O‘ahu office.
