www.CPYU.org, (The Center for Parent and Youth Understanding) posted an interesting link this week: 20 Stars 20 and Younger. I took a look through it, just to see how “in the know” I am these days. (I did pretty well.)
I spent some time reading teen comments and reactions to the chosen stars while I flipped through the photos. It got me thinking. Maybe our parents could take a look at the link and then chat about those celebs with their teens. Ask them what they think about the Jonas Brothers’, Miley Cyrus’s, or Annasophia Robb’s popularity. Ask them about the movies in which they act. Ask them what actors they appreciate or like.
It might be a good way to get your teen talking about the media, and give you as a parent the opportunity to find out which media messages are getting through to your kids.
