This is not a discussion any parent wants to have with their kids. We don't even wanna think about it but think about it we must. Our kids have a unique issue that we did not have.
They must be prepared for school shootings, mass attacks, and gun violence in a way that we never did. I hate that we even have to talk about this, but. We have to do this because it is incumbent on us to bring these issues out into the open so that parents can have these discussions.
Joining our host Melanie Cole, MS for this critical conversation is Dr. Lois Lee, she's an attending pediatric emergency medicine physician at Boston Children's Hospital and an associate professor of pediatrics and emergency medicine at Harvard Medical.
In this episode, Melanie and Dr. Lee discuss the humbling statistics of gun-based deaths, teen suicide, how to discuss safe gun storage with your child's friends' parents, and teaching kids to be aware and alert to what they see on social media.
