Dr. Arthur Lavin, Chair of the American Academy of Pediatrics Committee on Psychosocial Aspects of Child and Family Health, discusses how to talk to kids about violence with KSFR consumer reporter Mary Lou Cooper.  When should you talk to kids about violence and what should you say?  What are the signs that kids are not coping well?  Can school lockdown drills, as important as they are,  actually contribute to a kid's anxiety?
