 ACTRESS PHYLICIA RASHAD HOSTS ONE-HOUR SPECIAL ON 'A KID'S GUIDE
 TO PARENTING': SYNDICATED TO 120 FAMILY WORKS! TV STATIONS
 PITTSBURGH, Oct. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Actress Phylicia Rashad of The Cosby Show will host "A Kid's Guide to Parenting," a special program for kids ages 11 to 15. The nationally syndicated show will air on the network of 120 Family Works! TV stations across the country from October through December. The program is presented as part of Heinz U.S.A.'s two-year Family Works! public affairs campaign to support the vitality and diversity of today's American family.
 "A Kid's Guide to Parenting" will present an informative and humorous look at parent and child relationships and perspectives of both kids and parents on a variety of family subjects. Major family concerns, ranging from decision-making and divorce to sibling rivalry, will be presented in pre-taped segments, designed to promote family discussion and mutual understanding.
 Rashad will be joined by teenage co-host Matt Boren and 100 of his peers, in a live studio setting. Renowned Harvard child psychologist Dr. Carolyn Newberger helped identify key issues for the program, including privacy, communication, divorce and values.
 Rashad is best known to television viewers for her portrayal of super TV mom/lawyer/wife Clair Huxtable on the NBC television series "The Cosby Show." She also starred in several made-for-television movies including "Polly, False Witness" with Phillip Michael Thomas, "Polly Coming Home" and "Jailbirds" with Dyan Cannon.
 Family Works! is nationally sponsored by Heinz U.S.A. Family Works! programming is produced by Hearst Broadcasting's award-winning WCVB-TV in Boston and distributed nationally by Hearst Entertainment. Family Service America, the largest and oldest family service organization that works on the frontlines with families every day, is the public service associate for the campaign.
