Children face violence, hunger, murders, accidental deaths, kidnappings, trafficking, prostitution every day. These issues cause hardships for many people and not just to the very poor. Yet life goes on as usual for the majority of people while 1 in 6 people are in poverty. Areas are drug infested. Buildings are falling down. Lots are grown up. Being safe is an issue not just at night, but during day light. Schools are being closed in communities leaving children to travel further on foot to get to and from schools. Families are living in cars. People are living on streets. Cities passing ordinances making living in cars and feeding the homeless illegal. Why isn't these things of an urgent need to solve for Americas children? Why are these things happening across America? Why aren't these things being taken care of in America by Americans for Americans children? Why does America feel the need to house children from other countries whose parents are send them to America in hopes for a better life. A better life than they are living behind? A better life than 1 in 6 Americans? Why isn't there an urgent need to care for America's children?

Today, Annie Abram and Erin Forgay will discuss violence, using a new paradigm that challenges traditional perspectives about teaching young children how to cope with violent times. The troubles in Ireland (1969 - 1994) will serve as a background.
We often hear: "she/he is a child of two years. She won't possibly remember." However, the latest brain research and the behavior of children, who have experienced violence (war, family violence, media, long term cultural, religious conflicts) tells us a different story. Even if a child does not actually witness violence, the psychological environment in homes and communities, profoundly affects children's psyches and ways of viewing the world. If a grandparent was physically injured during war times and can not walk, a young child can make meaning of the situation in order to have some way of understanding. In many families explanations are vague and confusing. Helping children process trauma at their developmental level is essential. Otherwise, the trauma is transmitted from generation to generation. We all need the language to talk about our fears and concerns.
Under the guidance of Diane Levin, Erin and a group of Wheelock students traveled to Northern Ireland to work with Early Years’ Media Initiative. Through this program, the Wheelock students explored the conflicts of the area and the effects on young children. Using persona puppets and dolls, the program is geared towards teaching young children how to respect differences and to promote peace.
Children are exposed to violence in their communities and in their homes at alarming rates. What are the psychological and emotional effects of exposure to community violence? How does it impact school functioning/academic performance? What are the long term effects on mental health and well being? What can adults and schools do to support kids affected by violence? Clinical Psychologist Dr. Michele Cooley-Strickland, renowned expert and researcher on the effects of community violence on children, provides the answers on this episode ofLiving Well with Dr. Peg.

While we have clear data on murders from gun violence, no one seems to know how many Americans are shot – and survive – every year. In fact, the government’s own numbers seem to conflict on the matter.
How can this be? And why has no one tried to resolve the difference?
Lois Beckett explains that doctors and researchers have been pushing for clear numbers on gun injuries since 1989. “But what’s happened over that time is the politics of gun research, the politics of guns in America, are so divided and so fierce that even the effort to count the number of people injured by guns is incredibly political,” she says.
This is a very serious issue, and we want to put this out there once again for those of you that may have missed it the first time. Join Random this as we take on the issue of "Children of War" . Doing the research for this show has been emotional. Children are forced to be soldiers and often have been forced to kill their own families. There are 50 nations that support child soldiers!! There are over 200,000 child soldiers existing in Africa today. Bring your poetry, your comments and thoughts and join us.
