April 29, 2018

KidsQ! is designed to promote fun and healthy communication between parents and children, WCHL’s Kids Question of the Week “KidsQ” airs every Wednesday and Friday at 3:30PM during The Aaron Keck Show.

Presented by PTA Thrift Shop and the Youthworx on Main Collaborative; the beautiful community home for some great child focused non-profits: YouthForward, Triangle BikeWorks, Musical Empowerment, The SKJAJA FUND, ‘Healthy Girls Save the World’ and more!

So if you are driving around or at home eating a snack, ask your child this question and see where the conversation goes. If you have some great answers, feel free to share on facebook or twitter and tag @wchlchapelboro and @YouthworxOnMain using #KidsQ.
