sisandbro.jpgA recent government report reveals some promising news about America's kids, from how they're doing in school to how they're approaching sex.

Comparing the most current national statistics with previous years, the annual report from the Federal Interagency Forum on Child and Family Statistics (a collaboration of private research organizations and 22 federal agencies) features some of these hopeful findings:

* More kids lived with at least one working parent.
* More preschoolers were read to by a family member every day.
* Slightly more teens graduated high school.
* The number of high-schoolers who'd completed advanced academic courses nearly doubled from 1982 to 2004.
* Fewer teens had sex (than nearly 15 years ago) and those who did used condoms more often.
* Far fewer teens had babies than ever before (2005 marked a record low).
