These youths may be very susceptible to thoughts of suicide, and it is helpful to know what to look for. Join Tamara Hill, a licensed child and adolescent therapist and certified trauma professional, as she discusses safety planning and the 5 things we tend to miss while trying to understand suicide among youths ages 7-20.

I learned that what children and adults watch, read and listen to has a strong impact on their behaviors. Children and youth without the right guidance are easily influence by the things they take in visually and mentally.
Good job pointing out that kids and adults are easily influenced by music, books, movies, etc. Parents should be aware of what their children are reading, watching or listening to.
