Dr. Jeanette welcomes Dr. Azmaira Maker, clinical psychologist, to discuss gun violence and how it affects kids in this society where guns are everywhere these days.  Dr. Maker's book Where Did My Friend Go?  Helping Children Cope With a Traumatic Death is designed to help young children after a death in the family, friends or close circle.  Why are guns everywhere these days, schools, on the streets, in the homes, in a purse or passed around at the playground?  Shootings are on social media and television daily with emphasis on making a dramatic story that brings people in to engage in the anger and violence of the actions.  How can we help our children when they are exposed to guns in their lives?  Engage in your child's life and know what is going on, be present.
