DEALING WITH THE TRICKY ISSUES
A CONVERSATION WITH CAROL WESTON

How can we raise healthy confident kids? Carol Weston, columnist and author of twelve books, will answer your questions about body image, crushes, cliques, eating habits, talking about sex, parent/child relationships, homework, the Internet and more. She will read real letters from girls and boys seeking advice, and offer up-to-date statistics--both worrisome and reassuring. Newsweek calls her a "Dear Teen Dear Abby" and you will find her both entertaining and informative. Come with questions!
