Chat for adult and teens

For sports enthusiasts, the means connecting with other fans and debating in real time over which players in the league deserve to be placed in the hall of fame or even discuss salary caps.

For singles, the means finding love, a solid friendship or even finding a quick fling.

I'm Fred Kirchner, teen librarian at one of the Dayton, Ohio's branch libraries. I also work occasionally for Project Jericho, a group offering arts opportunities for at-risk teens in Clark County, OH. Anyway, now we're going to put together a library for teens at the Clark County Juvenile Detention Center.

Here's their web address: been Poet in Residence at several poetry slam workshops for them. And we're looking for YA Fiction & Non-Fiction titles for teens behind bars. If you have read (or heard about) any books lately that you think could help a teen in jail deal with issues and make a difference in their growth, or is just a great read, please share some titles.

You probably talk to friends way more than you talk to your parents. Even if you and your parents have a great relationship, you want to find your own path and make your own choices. Chatting with parents every day not only keeps an existing relationship strong, it also can help a frayed relationship get stronger.

Still, most of us want a parent's help, advice, and support at times. Talking to the adults in your life about everyday stuff builds a bond that can smooth the way for when you need to discuss something more serious. When parents feel connected to your daily life, they can be there for you if something really important comes up.

But talking to the adults in your life can seem difficult or intimidating — especially when it comes to certain subjects. Maybe you need to break bad news to a parent, like getting a speeding ticket or failing an exam.

Even small talk about what's for dinner can keep your relationship strong and comfortable. If you feel your relationship with your parents is strained, try easing into conversations. Talk about how well your little sister is doing in math.

Or maybe you just really, really want to tell your parents about your new boyfriend or girlfriend, but you don't know how they'll react, how it will feel to tell them, or how to find the words.

You get to see the people you’re talking with; it's the next best thing after actually being face to face with them.

For support groups, the means being able to face their problems, dilemmas and sufferings with other real people that are going through the exact same thing or have lived through such harsh times in the past.
