FCV103 Tween Sex Talk. More Info. Less Weird, Nicole Cushman
As kids grow their bodies change. So do their thoughts, feelings and desires. When young adolescents (10-14 year olds) start experiencing crushes, it can be exciting, awkward and very confusing. Tweens need education designed for them so they can make healthy choices when they are ready to become sexually active. Enter AMAZE, an innovative and yes, friendly, animated online video sex education resource for young adolescents. AMAZE takes the awkward out of sex education, or as they put it: "More info. Less weird." AMAZE is a partnership of three non-profit organizations: Answer, Advocates for Youth. and Youth Tech Health. Nicole Cushman, Executive Director of Answer, says, "The research shows that teens actually want to hear more from their parents about their values and expectations when it comes to sex, dating, and relationships." Encouraging, right? Annie talks to Nicole about how parents can comfortably talk to teens about sex. About Nicole Cushman (@SexHonestly) and AMAZE (@AmazeOrg) Nicole Cushman, MPH, Executive Director of Answer, an award-winning, national organization, providing invaluable sexuality education resources to millions of young people and adults every year.

FCV102 Good News about Kids and Video Games, Dr. Rachel Kowert
When computer games are a problem for parents, it's usually because a child/teen has become obsessed and no longer shows interest in "family time." Even when family time isn't impacted, parents may have other questions like: • "Is my child addicted to computer games?" • "Are violent games encouraging my child to be violent and/or desensitizing him to violence?" • "Is all this screen time hurting my child's social development?" Dr. Rachel Kowert, psychologist, online gamer, and author of "A Parent's Guide to Video Games: The essential guide to understanding how video games impact your child's physical, social, and psychological well-being", makes a strong case for the positive impact of computer games and why parents may not need to worry about their kids' love of gaming. About Dr. Rachel Kowert (@DrRachelKowert) Dr. Kowert's research is primarily focused on the social impact of online games. This includes addressing the anecdotal claim that online game players are socially different/deficient as compared to offline or non-players, examining the impact of online video game play on offline friendship networks, and evaluating the tangible social benefits of online game play.

FCV101 How to Talk to Kids About Anything, Dr. Robyn Silverman
At times, every child feels worried, confused, or scared. In those moments, kids need safe adults to talk to. When your child comes to you, out of the blue, with a burning question, or when your family is faced with a sensitive situation that requires your bringing kids into the loop, how do you do it effectively? Psychologist Dr. Robyn Silverman, author of "Good Girls Don't Get Fat" and "Bully: An Action Plan for Teachers, Parents and Communities to Combat the Bullying Crisis" reminds parents that conversations are "not soliloquies." Listening (without distractions) to what your child has to say is at least as important as what you have to say. Annie and Robyn discuss how to talk to kids about anything. About Robyn Silverman (@DrRobyn) Dr. Robyn Silverman, AKA Dr. Robyn, is a leading Child and Adolescent Development Specialist with a focus on character education and body/self esteem development during childhood, adolescence, and young adulthood.

Her popular podcast "How to Talk To Kids About Anything" is a compassionate resource for parents.
