The Pressures of Prom
April 16, 2012
Hosted by Nikki and the Paper Hope Street Team
Are you feeling any pressure about going to prom? Between who will be your date, how you will be asked, the cost of what you will wear to some of the darker pressures like alcohol and the pressure to have sex on prom night we will be discussing the validity of these pressures and what parents and teens can do to put a plan in place to help elevate the pressure and make sure prom is filled with fun. Hear from our teens, Yvonne and Ashli and mom, and founder of Paper Hope Tamra, as they share stories and safe guard tactics moms and teens can use to help make prom safe and stress free.
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.
