This week we take a look at screen violence in the form of video games, television and movies. We look at the different types of violence and the effect it has on today’s youth. We’ll look at some interesting statistics and several studies that offer insights into both sides of the argument of whether screen violence leads to violence in today’s youth. Then we’ll take a look at what parents can do to help teens cope with the violence that is so prevalent in our current media and entertainment.
In a very emotional episode today we discuss the challenges of coping with Traumatic Stress. We look at what Traumatic Stress is, some of the common causes of it and how to cope with the physical and psychological effects that Traumatic Events can have on us. During our discussion we analyze some traumatic events that both Madison and Joe experienced, the long term effects it had on us and how even to this day we are still coping with those effects.
