think our conversations should be had about mass shooting that we have about substances about sexual assault with our kids. i mean we shouldn't shy away from intense conversations, and we really want to do a balance of giving them some tools to look out for for safety. so for example in this like when you go into a school or go into movie theater, just be mindful of where the exits are. not telling them to not go because then that's fueling unnecessary anxiety, um, but some tips to just kind of keep -- be able to keep themselves safe maximize their chance of safety just like we sell our kids put a seat belt on at the end of the day we all kind of have to live and tolerate with the uncertainty that every day we leave our house we're risking our safety tech nick chi. >> technically. you're absolutely right about that. what signs should children be looking out for in their friends, in their peer, in their classmates or teammates that something might be wrong or there might be trouble brewing? >> um, so what the research shows as far as the top three things that are related to mass
