Parenting in the digital age has never been tougher. It seems the world is changing around us at an ever-increasing speed with new technology, massive amounts of information, and new dangers lurking everywhere--especially online.
At school and in our communities our kids are talking about BIG topics and they have questions. Whether it is about technology, racism, suffering, death, social classes, changing technologies, the environment, terrorism, it's time for us as caring adults to combine our wisdom and their tech savvy to strengthen and empower one another. To address these newer, more challenging concerns, Educate and Empower Kids™ has created a brilliant new resource for parents and teachers, Conversations with My Kids.
Comprised of five sections (Technology, The World Around Us, Relationships, Self-Improvement, and Deeper Topics) with 30 unique topics, Conversations gives you the words and handy discussion questions to have meaningful talks about the real issues of the day. Addressing tough topics on an ongoing basis strengthens kids, brings you closer together, and opens the door when your kids need to tell you something REALLY important.
The 30 Conversations include:

PLUS LOTS MORE!
Every child and teen is faced with a huge variety of pressures on every side and we can help them to overcome adversity, face unique challenges, and become strong, resilient adults! How do we do this?
We help our kids by connecting with them in deep, meaningful conversations about important topics, including some of the struggles they now face or will in the future. This is what inspired us to write Conversations!
Connecting with our kids begins with simple, daily interactions. Use these simple conversation starters to talk about deep issues. Have fun as you tackle these topics, even the heavy ones. Find the humor in tough talks and learn to lighten up as you help your kids face life's challenges.
