SORT BY Relevancy
Join co-hosts Eriic Komoroff (www.communityofunity.org) and Dr. Jason Stein (iRyze.com) in a discussion of our youth and this troubling and destructive aspect of maturation. How do we help minimize the effects of this behavior in our youth and also protect our children from the ramifications.
Each year, more than 20,000 children and youth under age 20 are killed or injured by firearms in the United States.1 Thousands of young people are shot by peers, family members, or strangers, either intentionally or unintentionally. Thousands more use guns to attempt suicide, and these attempts prove successful more often than suicides attempted by other means.2 Countless other children and youth, though not injured or killed themselves, are survivors of gun violence, scarred by the effects of such violence in their homes, schools, or communities. Although children and youth are often victimized by gun violence, they also can become perpetrators, using guns to kill or maim others.
What is the answer to keeping guns out of the hands of our children?
Let's talk about it Wednesday night at 8pm on DPRADIOXL.
In observance of Youth Violence Prevention Week, teen hosts Yanira, Kaitlyn, and Salwa discuss the causes of violence among young people and what communities can do to eliminate the problem. Our guest is Tiffany Brec, educator and outreach coordinator from Vera House.

With all the social media sites that our youth are on these days there are MANY ways that youth can now become aggressive toward each other. With Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Google+, Glide, SnapChat and so much more as parents we have to monitor ALL of these things, learn how to use them and learn how our children are using them!
Electronic aggression or cyber-bullying has become much more prevelant these days. Youth make fake accounts and say horrible things to people they know and people they don't know. They find that hiding behind a computer screen means they have less consiquences and that no one may find out who they are.
We will talk about what to do if you see cyber-bullying, signs to look for in your children and what to do if you think your child is cyber-bullying others.

Violence among youth has become a growing threat to communities nationwide. While nobody knows exactly what causes youth to act out, there are some factors that can enhance violent tendencies in children. These causes can range from drug abuse to abuse at home as well as being the victim of a bully at school. It is up to parents to look for signs that their child is either the victim of crimes or is becoming violent themselves.
10 Causes of Youth Violence
· Teens who are involved in violent activities usually do not perform them alone but in a group of friends. Knowing your child's friends and how they behave can reveal to you whether or not there are warning signs of violence. Teenagers are easily influenced by their friends, so if the friends are violent, the chances of your teen becoming violent will increase.
· If a teen's parents are abusive, violent or portray hostile behavior to each other, to the teen or to others outside the family, there is a likely chance the teen will display similar or worse behavior.
Being Bullied or Victimized
· Teenagers who are victims of bullying or teasing are more likely to become violent as a last resort, cry for help or as revenge.
Access to Weapons
· Teenagers who have easy access to weapons, especially guns, will find it easier to act out violent fantasies or vengeful feelings.

Youth violence in urban communities is linked to high unemployment. However, where do jobs come from? From people who start businesses and receive customers! African American women represent one of the largest consumer markets, and the money they spend creates jobs for many communities outside of the inner city. What would happen if these women concentrated their spending in the neighborhoods where people need jobs? Minister Rahim, better known as Sax Preacher, is head of the United American Progress Association, a fifty year old organization founded by Webb Evans, with the slogan "Buy Black" . Can a change in spending habits create enough cash flow to produce jobs for the masses of unemployed youth? If so, what would it take to make that happen
