It is tough being a kid in this day and age. It is tough being a parent in this day and age. It is tough raising a kid in today’s society. Everywhere you turn you are either doing the right thing or the wrong thing, everyone has an opinion about what you should do, and no one is willing to really offer any help.
The Family First site we look at today is one that can be of some help to both parents and kids. It is called Connecting with Kids, and is a website that utilizes the latest in Internet technology to help families face the turbulent times together. The site is divided into several sections, covering such diverse areas as peers, health, social issues, and sports. The information here is current, and is presented in a non-judgmental, non-threatening way. There is a special section on voting, with special emphasis on the themes being pitched to today’s youth.
This site is a great example of the way the Internet helps by spreading information and providing services. It is truly becoming the way of the future, and is an excellent resource for both parents and schools. .
