I have a combobox in an application which is in wpf and linq
 <ComboBox Height="23" HorizontalAlignment="Left" Margin="70,32.24,0,0" Name="cbGroup" VerticalAlignment="Top" Width="187" AllowDrop="True" SelectedIndex="0">
                            <ComboBoxItem>Adult</ComboBoxItem>
                            <ComboBoxItem>Youth</ComboBoxItem>
                            <ComboBoxItem>Children</ComboBoxItem>
                            <ComboBoxItem>Unknown</ComboBoxItem>
                        </ComboBox>

I am using the following code to insert the selected value in the database

 NewContact.AgeGroup = (string)this.cbGroup.SelectedValue.ToString();

but this  inserts in the database
System.Windows.Controls.ComboBoxItem: Children
please let me know how  i can insert the text value of the selected value in the database

this doesn't work because

SelectedItem doesn't have a value property

This application is in wpf  and dot net 3.5
