Travis sat down with Dr. Phil prior to coronavirus escalating to its current state in America, but Dr. Phil's advice is still as important as ever and may help parents navigate these difficult and uncertain times.
While discussing the events of September 11 and how it affected the children who saw the footage of the World Trader Center falling over and over on the news, Phil explains that many kids assumed buildings across the country were falling and they questioned their own safety. The same could be said about our current pandemic and the onslaught of information and life changes kids are having to make. Dr. Phil suggests parents be as mindful and diligent as possible about how much disaster-related content kids -- especially young ones -- are exposed to and how the information is digested.
