FRONTLINE spent months following three young girls who are growing up against the backdrop of their families' struggles against financial ruin. The result is an intimate portrait of the economic crisis as it's rarely seen, through the eyes of children. Poor Kids is an unflinching and revealing exploration of what poverty means to children, and to the country's future.

A poignant documentary

By Nickd945

Comments about PBS FRONTLINE: Poor Kids DVD:

This is a truly engrossing documentary that chronicles the lives of several impoverished families here in the U.S., told from the perspective of children. As such, it makes for compelling storytelling. I am currently using this documentary with my high school seniors as an anticipatory activity for Barbara Ehrenreich's bestseller, "Nickel and Dimed." The students were glued to the screen during the showing; later, it provided a great whole-group discussion. Highly recommended.

The Truth Hurts

By KikaD

from Norman, OK.

Comments about PBS FRONTLINE: Poor Kids DVD:

If you think you have it bad, if you feel sorry for yourself, watch this and know you are better off than you think. Get out of your comfort zone and make a difference for one family. If we all help our poor maybe they will find a path to better days. Reach down and pull someone out of the rutt; you never know when it's your turn to fall.
