Hosted by Nikki and the Paper Hope Street Team
Paper Hope Street Team takes on the difficult discussion of Mean Girls with special guest Joira Roman, fellow high school student from a neighboring high school. Joria is a junior. The girls have Tamra Wade, author and founder of Paper Hope on the show to help navigate this difficult subject as they define mean girls, delineate between mean girls and bullying, ways girls are mean, explore why and what can be done. Rio, Yvonne and Joria all share personal and painful stories of how mean girls have effected them. We will share what we have learned from reading stories sent in from our listeners and how it compares to information in the media. Daily Details. All information and books referenced in our broadcast will be listed on www.paperhope.com blog post Mean Girls. We will have more detailed information about this subject that we couldn't fit in on air. Our show today is dedicated to a special listener – Leah. Listen for Leah's heart felt dedication. Thank you for listening!
Paper Hope Street Team
Monday at 12 Noon Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica Kids Channel
Paper Hope Street Team is made up of teens ranging in age from 13 to 19. They will be talking about issues that are impacting teens and their families. We will discuss topics that affect teens’ daily lives such as friendship, relationships, underage drinking, sex and drug use. No topic is off limits.
Paper Hope was started to provide a tool to help mothers and daughters open the lines of communication when facing these difficult subjects. Taking stories from founder Tamra Wade’s high school journals we want to take a glimpse into the raw world of a teen-aged girl to start the conversations.
Each week the Paper Hope Street Team will be discussing a blog topic from a teen’s unique perspective and offering parents and teen’s solutions to everyday issues. We hope you will be a part of the conversation! Tune in Mondays at 12 Noon Pacific Time on the VoiceAmerica Kids Channel. Produced by KidStar Radio Network.
