I have so much to say and not enough time to say it.
If you have access to HBO Family channel and you are a parent or teacher please watch "Middle School Confessions", a documentary released in January 2002 which is re-running this month.
My heart broke for the victim-kids in this documentary as well worrying about and wondering how the kids who chose certain behaviors (sexual activity, drinking, smoking, skipping school) ended up faring in life (so far). I would like a 2008 update to hear how they are 6-7 years after they were interviewed. That would put most of the kids at age 19-22 today.
See the above link for show infomation, the schedule of air times, and a parent guide.
