EDUCATIONAL GOALS -
YOUNG ADOLESCENTS SHOULD:

As adolescents begin to take charge of their lives, their relationships with their parents change, often painfully. This show encourages kids to understand their parents' concerns and motivations and to keep open the lines of communication. It urges them to take a realistic and empathetic view of their parents, and to realize that the freedom and autonomy they desire is best earned by proving to their parents that they are responsible and trustworthy.
