You roll all but family.
In gun violence and in some of the U mass shootings we have seen.
Parents have a responsibility as we talked about why would doctor.
Bath Rossi Leon I want to bring in -- told more about that Erica cats who is the altar of bonding over beauty joining me here in the studio great to see America.
Com -- think Kennedy drool festival can we -- our line.
Between these kind of mass shootings -- seen and family background all the commonalities in in many of the cases we see nor any of the cases we've seen.
Well it's very hard to tell because there's so many different cases and different factors into why somebody would actually do something like this me.
The most important thing we can do is be proactive as parents to try to protect her kids as best we can.
And one other thing -- I suggest is personal we need to take some of the mystery out of guns we need to talk to our children and say look.
Whether you are blown up.
Or a -- proponent or you're against guns talking to your kids is going to help whichever which -- a view you have.
Well I think I think you have to talk to take kids no matter what because remember.
-- -- congress did some research and they found out there were 310.
Million firearms in this country and that does not include anything on military bases.
And the populations 314 million people at the time.
Why don't whether you're for guns or against guns they're here pandora's box is open and we need to deal that point -- What we have in front of us and we can't just wait for legislation we have to as parents do something.
So the first thing you have to do is -- your kids if you ever see a -- don't touch it right.
It's very simple thing but how many parents out there has ever have ever really -- that to their kids is just a simple thing but she need to say.
And then you say if you do you see it done you don't touch it and you tell an adult immediately.
Then I think in -- gun -- you really do you have to take the mystery out of that -- we -- to talk to your kids get past the age appropriate -- to have to tell them.
Why you have that god wanted the airport -- -- -- -- for sport utility.
And then that you need to lock it up maybe put its eighth and the seat -- have a -- that your kids do not -- -- so I think that is really important.
What about the idea of what about the the very difficult process of talking -- -- kids.
In the wake of gun violence in the wake of something like the terrible massacre at sandy hook how important is that.
Well I was in the situation I have a twelve year old son and I have a nine year old daughter now my nine year old daughter -- Very very concerned about this because she of course but -- some bad guy come in and do this in my school.
And I think you really need to reassure your child this is a very uncommon thing this is not something that happens every day with a -- person.
And you need to put the newspapers away and try to have that not exposed to it because.
It's a horrible thing and how do you it's hard for -- -- understand and explain how -- -- child understand.
Right now and on the the other side of this those two main.
Perpetrate these kind of acts -- -- doctor -- about this earlier if you are a parent.
And you think that your child is having some real issues -- -- you do first.
If you're -- parent and you think your child.
It's really -- issues first of all stay out of tonight a lot of parents don't -- deal it's very hard here to -- your -- not perfect.
I see all the time I've missed a child comes home -- -- -- call.
Or hear the -- responsibly my child they just sort of pass it off so it's not true you're overreacting I think as a parent if you're seeing warning signs.
You need to pay attention.
Hopefully try to get psychiatric help you can't really it.
The box he can't say oh not my child my child but whenever I can't even tell you how many parents -- it -- my child has good judgment.
Let me tell all parents out there there's no such thing it's good judgment.
It child because as great as the judge speaking be their brain hasn't fully developed and they do things they just did it right.

He really as a -- Need to be aware there.
You need to talk to your kids and also I think parents need to monitor their kids' social media right be right in a lot of these cases.
They find that they had YouTube videos where they -- posting if they're pressing things on FaceBook there with violence was there there was -- that it still look at your kids status update and asked to see their friends that updates as well talk to them.
And threatening your kids on the spot try to talk about other people and did you see with this one did it -- when did the minute they feel like thinking communicate with you and that.
