Communication is the theme throughout the month of November on the Game Ready Mom Radio Show. The series begins on Thursday, Nov. 7th with a discussion about communicating with your "Tween." Kathy Starks, Guidance Counselor at Kilbourne Middle School in Ohio, has over 23 years of experience working with kids this age. She's seen it all and heard more.

Kathy will give us some basic strategies to deal with that time when it seems like one day your child goes to sleep still drawing pictures with crayons and the next day they wake up asking if they can get the latest phone or download the Drake album. How did they grow up so quickly and how do you talk to these little people who are now too old for the Backyardigans for but far too young to make serious choices?

Be sure to mark your calendars for the next two shows. Experts will be on hand to talk about communicating with your teens and college students. If you have comments, questions or even a funny story about talking to your kid, share it with us.

Also, we'll have our awesome weekly features – Mia's Tech Tips and Deb's Encourging Words.
