Want to know what your child is dealing with out in the world when it comes to peer relationships? Their self-concept? How about their thoughts on difficult topics like sexuality, social media, technology, or drugs and alcohol?
Thanks to Adam Brooks new product, Drivealogue, parents now have a more natural way to discuss tough and timely issues with their kids. His conversation starter packs get us adults intentionally talking to our children about topics more meaningful than what we ate for lunch or what grade was achieved on that math test.
Brooks, the founder of Youth Awareness and Safety, was concerned about the heightened rate of youth suicide in Arizona and wanted to make a product that would allow parents to engage in tough conversations with their children proactively.
“My cards were designed to have meaningful, brave conversations that we may not even want to have, but that we desperately have to have if we’re going to keep our kids safe today,” said Brooks.
Brooks came up with the concept of using his card game in the car because he had read that kids were more likely to open up and freely communicate with adults if they didn’t have to make direct eye contact. Not only that, but today’s reality finds parents spending more time in the car shuttling kids around to activities, so why not make a product to help us forge more meaningful conversations during our time on the road together.
Drivealogue features three unique card decks meant for different age groups- for elementary, middle and high school-aged kids.
The cards feature questions like:
“What would you do if someone sent you a nude photo?”
“What would you do if someone who you were friends with in elementary school started ignoring you in middle school?”
There are also many lighthearted cards scattered throughout the decks as well, with questions like “What if you started a video channel. What would it be about?”
At $20 each, Drivealogue card decks make the perfect family hostess gift this holiday season! To order or learn more, click HERE!
