REVIEW:
In today's world, kids are confronting sex, HIV/AIDS, violence, alcohol, and drugs at an increasingly early age. Experts identify ages 8-12 years as an important window of opportunity when children are most open to hearing about these tough issues from their parents. Talk With Your Kids gives parents tools and tips on how to have open and honest conversations with their kids. The site also features an organizer's toolkit for people interested in sharing the Talk With Your Kids program at community events such as PTA or church meetings. The information is also available in a downloadable booklet version that can be printed out and shared with others.
