Synopsis by Alice Day
Supportive discussions regarding alcoholic parents are provided in Kids Talking to Kids, as five teenagers talk about their experiences with the problem. The program offers methods for a positive approach, and stresses the importance of independence. Instead of dwelling on the difficulties at home, kids are encouraged to seek out their own avenues of interest. Too often, feelings of self-pity can overcome teens, who may feel isolated and see no solutions to their dilemma. Viewers can listen to a panel of peers as they share their stories about coping in this program aimed at kids aged ten to 13.
