Dr. Cathy Reimers, Ph.D., psychologist in New Jersey, and co-host Jennifer Russello, parent in New Jersey, discuss the psychological effects of many toys and gifts that we are giving to our children.  As the Holidays are growing closer, we all do it; we give our kids the hottest trends in toys, whatever the latest rage is, we want our kids to have it.  But the storm is brewing in our lives as we see toys and games becoming more violent than ever.  Even music is loaded with profanity.  Toy guns were once no big deal, however, in recent years, kids and teens have lost their lives over them. Boys are becoming more aggressive, girls are having self confidence issues and our families are suffering. Join us to explore what toys and games are dangerous and why, and let's discuss some safe, healthy gift options for our kids this holiday.  As parents, it is our job to protect our children from harm - even though the harm may be disguised in toys and games!
