Thanks for checking out our Let’s Talk About… series. Ready to get the conversation started?
Let’s face it, pre-teen and teen children have unique challenges, especially in the complicated world in which we live today. We know that some topics may be difficult for adults and teens to talk about, and may even cause family uproar. Most conflict can be linked to two things: the lack of a shared knowledge base, and charged emotions when talking about serious issues. Let’s Talk About… might be the tool needed to help you get the conversation started.
This project, developed by Cornell University Cooperative Extension Orange County in cooperation with the Orange County Parenting Coalition and the Orange County Youth Bureau, is all about creating an opportunity to learn new information about challenging issues and open the door to positive communication.
So, poke around. Check out the videos, slide show presentations and resources. Leave a comment (or three) on the Feedback Forum. If you want to know more about the project, go to our About or Contact Us pages. And if you see something you like, pass it on to a friend!
The following video “tools” are now available for viewing. Click below to watch the programs, then let us know what you think!
We have provided each video and presentation in a few formats. Each will stream live on your computer as a Flash video, Which will need Flash player installed. While more then 98% of computers already have some version of flash, this is a free download from Adobe.com. Since your computer almost certainly has Flash already, you can head to each topic and click the “Play” button on the Video Player to get started!
Further, each video or presentation will be downloadable as it’s own file, playable through QuickTime. And finally, with all of these formats — contact us to let us know if something isn’t working for you!
