Guest Host: Steve Roberts

While parents watch cable news and debate the war, schoolkids see frightening images from parts of the world they’ve never heard of. Experts talk about the specific concerns American children have about the war in Iraq, and offer advice to parents and teachers on explaining these often confusing, recent events.

Guests

  • Tracy Grant editor, "KidsPost" page of the "Washington Post"
  • Dr. Dan Kindlon professor of child psychology at Harvard, and author of "Tough Times, Strong Children" (Miramax)
