"Let's make things better" is a pledge that we at Philips
make to ourselves and to the world. We apply it to our products and to
everything we do. "Let's Connect" is part of that philosophy.
The program was developed to raise awareness of the need for better communication
between middle school age children and their parents -- and to help provide
the skills they both need to achieve that goal. This age group was chosen
because it is a time of rapid change for kids, parents and how they relate
to one another.
In addition to this Web site, "Let's Connect" includes
a national survey of parents and their middle-school-age
children and a series of communication workshops for parents and kids at
middle schools across the country. The workshops
feature Lawrence Kutner, Ph.D., one of the country's best-known child psychologists,
and Arjay Smith, star of the Nickelodeon show "The Journey of Allen
Strange," and Michelle Trachtenberg, star of the Nickelodeon movie
Harriet the Spy" and the show "The Adventures of Pete and Pete."
