Thirteen, Hooking Up
Rob points us to CBC's series on kids Hooking Up. In the post he mentions the film Thirteen, which I saw Thursday night. Thirteen is an excellent movie. The fact that Nikki Reed, one of the two teenage actors, cowrote the somewhat autobiographical story at the age of thirteen makes it even more remarkable. As I commented on Rob's site, if my daughter Abby were 12-15 (thankfully she's only three) I would take her to see the movie then go for a long walk on the north shore to talk about it ... or maybe just quietly think about it together. We need to share and deal with these issues together with our kids.
Go see the movie. Take your kids.
