From NPR's Latino USA: The Kids Are Not Alright

How does stress in the home affect children? On this episode of Latino USA, we meet a family of American siblings whose mother lacks legal status in the U.S. to explore the unintended consequences immigration policies have on these kids. We also visit a pediatrician's office where babies are being screened by mental health experts. Although it may seem odd to send a toddler to a psychologist, doctors say it's never too early to help identify toxic stresses at home.
