Why are they bombing those people? Will we have to move, too? Is there going to be a nuclear war? Kids are stressed and anxious about the invasion of Ukraine just like adults, and Jordan Friedman talks with psychologist Amanda Baden about how to notice and respond to their worries. After the conversation, we've got a new and cool way to give some peace to Ukrainians and their families.
