          Living with the War, Part 1

          April 03, 2004

          The nation is consumed with the war in Iraq, but how do we also go on living our lives? How can we cope with our fears? Dr. Phil helps adults and children during this difficult time.

          Dr. Phil’s Family

          Like many Americans, this war is very personal for Dr. Phil. His sister’s only child, Douglas, is a Navy fighter pilot in Iraq flying a plane called “The Dr. Phil.”


          Talking to Children

          How do you explain the war to children? Should you protect them from images of the horrific reality? Dr. Phil talks to 5-year-olds to see the war through their eyes.
