I am asking people to use Kids Talk Radio to send positive messages to kids.

I want to have a conversation about sending positive messages to kids.

These are touch times for kids around the world. They need hope and inspiration. Kids today are worried about finances, jobs, gangs, schools, families breaking up, violence in the community. buying a home, getting something to eat. What other items could you add to this list. If you are a kid the future does not look very bright.

Here are my questions to you:

What can you say to give a kid hope?
What could you teach a kid?
What quotes would you like to share?
What can you tell a kid to give him/her hope?
What should kids be doing to get ready for the future?
What message would you like to tell or youth?
How can you help a kid?
What can you you do to give back some of your personal time to help a kid?
