What are your Kids Thinking?
“If I only knew what my kids were thinking,” a mother of preteens cried out.
In the midst of a conversation on understanding how the culture of social media, virtual friendships, and the constant borage of peer pressure, this mom wept as she shared her struggle to communicate with her three children.
