Kudos to the community organizations for giving these teens a voice. We would do well to listen to them more often (and on more topics). As parents and concerned adults, we too often resort to speaking on our teens' behalf. If we treat our teenagers like the responsible young adults we want them to be, we will likely be pleased with the result.

Here's hoping as many - or more - teens come to THIS session as the last one. This one is the opportunity teens have been asking for - to get together with Palo Alto's adult leaders, to express their issues and discuss ideas, together. Could be very cool.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
