Episode Description

Ug! Arguments with parents is the worst! It seems that parents sometimes don't understand or even remember what it was like to ever have been a teen. Today Paper Hope Street Team will be talking about the most common causes of arguments in families with a specific focus on 'rite of passage' behaviors. We will be exploring why parents sometimes act like they don't remember what it was like to be a teen when setting rules, communication styles and other behaviors. This is a great show to listen to together. Share points of view and open up the conversation in your own home about why you argue. Sometimes the reasons might surprise you.

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.
