Every day we hear gruesome stories of violent acts committed by young people: school shootings, gang wars, bullying. But why are so many kids turning to violence, and how do we stop it? Experts have begun to figure out some of the answers; other answers come from the kids who live through the violence. This program brings you the insights of both these groups. Visit a young man in his neighborhood in Newark, New Jersey - one of the toughest cities in the country - and see how he has managed to stay clear of the violence around him. Meet his mother, and discover the role she has played in his success. See first-hand how one innovative program reaches out to four year olds, showing them effective ways to resolve problems without resorting to violence. Join host Dr. Winnie King as she devotes a special half-hour to teaching all of us how to break the cycle of violence.
