7:02 am
moment. first we want to get to that school shooting in south carolina. children terrified after a teen gunman opened fire at the playground. parents' worst nightmare. three injured before he was taken into custody. his father was shot found dead before the rampage and abc's steve osunsami is in townville, south carolina, with all the details. good morning, steve. >> reporter: good morning, robin. authorities aren't sure what set this teenager off. he didn't even go to school here. he was authorities tell us they don't even believe when he came here he intended to target his alleged victims. this morning a teacher and two young students are recovering from gunshot wounds after a teenager with a handgun came shooting at this playground during recess. >> did have a report of a third patient. >> reporter: 1:45 p.m. the kids at townville elementary were near the end of the day. reports of an active shooter at the school lit up cell phones across town. one of their teachers, a woman outside was shot in her shoulder
7:03 am
in. one boy was shot in the foot. another boy, 6-year-old jacob hall was shot in the leg and had to be airlifted to a hospital. his parents tell us he needed surgery is still there this morning. >> there were some students out on the recess area and the shooting may have occurred there and the teacher got the students in the classroom. >> reporter: police say that the unidentified young man now in their custody is just 14 years old. officers can be seen speaking to someone in the back of a cruiser and say the hero of the steer i got there first and tackled the kid to the ground. >> he is a proud member of the townville volunteer fire department and did nothing that any of the other volunteer firefighters would have done. >> reporter: two miles away they discover the body of his father in their home. police say he was shot dead. we watched as police towed away a truck from the crime scene. authorities tell us the teenager got into a black truck, drove to the school, rammed a fence, got out, started shooting yelling i
7:04 am
for parents this was a nightmare. >> obviously the worst. it's not a phone call you ever want to get. >> reporter: here's how police found the boy's father. they tell us the boy called his grandparents, the grandparents came to the home, discovered the father's body. called 911. school is closed here for the rest of the week. grief counselors will be here for parents and students who need today and tomorrow. robin. >> and beyond, you're right about that, steve, thank you. now let's take a look at this heavy rains and winds. that's tropical storm matthew hitting the caribbean hard right now. they've got a lot of people in the southeast watching and, ginger, where is matthew heading. >> west then due north. but at least one person is dead. that was in st. vincent crushed by a boulder in a landslide. you can see the turbulent ocean. the barbados, the caribbean doesn't always look like that.
7:05 am
it is moving west at about 16 miles per hour and has a lot of warm water to fuel this storm and as it's a tropical storm it looks like it'll become a hurricane as we start the weekend, go through sunday and then some upper level forcing will start to force it northward. the farther it goes east the better for us. a lot of computer models are taking it out in the ocean. if it goes west we'll be talking about it midweek. >> thanks, ginger. the race for the white house and more fallout from that big debate. donald trump still claiming victory even as sources in his own campaign tell abc news he's to blame for what went wrong monday night. abc's tom llamas is at trump headquarters. pretty extraordinary finger-pointing getting criticized by his own staff. >> reporter: this is a blame game like we've never seen with the trump campaign and it comes at a time that hillary clinton is launching a full frontal assault. she was campaigning with senator bernie sanders yesterday. michelle obama out by herself hitting trump hard and the
7:06 am
but now dealing with this debate fallout. this morning, trouble inside the trump campaign. finger-pointing at the highest levels about trump's rocky debate. in an explosive admission, a senior aide telling abc news, the lion's share of the plame rests with one person, donald trump. that aide saying, quote, trump's debate failures stem from more a lack of execution than preparation. and he left a lot of things on the table. he pulled his punches, l nerve. publicly trump has claimed victory citing unscientific polls. >> i had a great time and i know you say the polls weren't scientific but every single poll that was taken i won the debate and some of them by a lot. >> reporter: top aides disagree including about what went wrong. some argue he didn't prepare enough and that there were missed opportunities including not mentions benghazi, trump himself says he showed restraint at the debate when it came to bill clinton's past affairs. >> i was also holding back, i
7:07 am
>> reporter: but now trump is turning up the heat on clinton. bringing up that video outside the 9/11 memorial when clinton almost collapsed. >> you see all the days off that hillary takes. day off, day off, day off. all those day offs and then she can't even make it to her car. isn't it tough? >> reporter: first lady michelle obama taking on trump in the important pennsylvania. >> the president just can't pop off or lash out irrationally. no. we need an adult in the white house. >> reporter: urging people to get out and vote for hillary clinton. >> who spent 11 hours testifying before a congressional committee. can i get an amen. hillary is tough. >> reporter: now, back to the debate prep for a moment. so that first debate, rudy jude
7:08 am
chris christie to help out with the second debate. >> okay, tom, while i have you "newsweek" out a few minutes ago with a brand-new cover story talking about how donald trump and his companies broke the cuba embargo by funneling money through a consulting firm. pretty exclusive charge right there. what is the trump campaign saying about it? >> reporter: right now the trump campaign has no comment but that investigation alleges that the trump corporation reimbursed consultants to go into communist cuba and explore casino the magazine claims that business undertaking by itself violated the embargo but the big contradiction here is that trump then and now says he would never do business with a castro regime. george. >> we'll see what they say later. let's bring in matthew dowd for more. i have to start with that quote in tom's piece. a candidate staff saying he lost his nerve during the debate. i've never seen anything like it. you've been inside the top levels of campaigns. take us inside their staff meeting this morning after something like that comes out.
7:09 am
yelling going on in the midst of that. i think that donald trump -- obviously we've seen it transition from various campaign managers, now on their third set of leadership. to me what it looks like is somebody hasn't been able to give him the advice or him take the advice so what they're now trying to do is try to get him the advice through doing it exte externally and doing it publicly. i don't think it's going to help but that's the only explanation i can have for why they did this. >> this "newsweek" cover story, you saw hillary clinton try to put trump's business the docket on monday night. more charges here. does this cut? >> i think the problem with this it's an accumulated wait so every time there's a story that goes to a problem that he's got in his business, it just weighs on the american public who then finally comes to the conclusion that says i can't trust this guy. i can't trust his business background. the other part of the story, this is about the cubans, right, and the cuban vote in florida is very important for him if he's going to carry florida. if they think that he was
7:10 am
for him. >> meantime, you saw that quote from michelle obama last night. pretty fiery speech in pennsylvania. you had president obama out yesterday saying any vote that's not for hillary clinton is a wasted vote even if you're voting for gary johnson or jill stein. they have a direct case to millennials. >> they had a concerted plan going into that debate and coming out of that debate. not only from the ?freepress they got stories but surrogates hit the trail in the aftermath and some of the most popular surrogates, undecided voters in most popular people among undecided voters and partisans are president obama and michelle obama and they're now out and about. >> matthew, one more question, if you're donald trump and watching obamas on the trail, other people have influence speaking out for hillary how do you go head-to-head with that. >> i think it would be problematic for him to try to sort of scurry around and find surrogates of his own. i would practice it like judo, use their weight against them and basically say i'm here
7:11 am
against you and the public so if you want to get rid of the status quo which is them vote for me who'sr me who's the sing leader. >> and once again, she never -- michelle obama never mentioned him by name. >> she is the best at surgically going through that and doing it in a way that you start nodding and never hear donald trump's name but you know exactly what she's talking about. new concerns about hacking and the electric. the fbi are actively trying to break into multiple states voter databases. abc's senior justice correspondent pierre thomas is in washington with these breaking new details. good morning, pierre. >> reporter: good morning, robin. abc news learned u.s. authorities suspected hackers affiliated with the russian government have tried to infiltrate the voter registration databases of at least 15 states and sources briefed on the investigation tell us at least 4 states actually had voter registration computer networks breached with hackers snooping around and
7:12 am
voters. robin. >> there are many reasons why hackers would want to do those, right? >> reporter: it would give the hackers the names and addresses allowing them to steal identities potentially but the bigger concern they might get in and try to change the voter rolls. thankfully sources say that hasn't happened yet. still all this makes authorities super uneasy, robin. >> that's understandable. pierre, thank you. >> a lot to be nervous about. protesters took to the streets overnight calling on police to release the video showing the killing of an have been mentally ill. abc's matt gutman has the latest. >> no justice. >> reporter: overnight unrest gridlocking this city. the protests covered miles but were mostly peaceful. hundreds of protesters spilling out from a memorial for alfred olango, an unarmed man shot at this strip mall. police revealing that what
7:13 am
was a vape device. one of the two officers you see here fired multiple shots. >> you killed my brother in front of me. >> reporter: olango's sister who you see grieving was right there. >> we don't want to have -- >> reporter: that video streamed live on facebook but this woman. >> she was standing there crying and warning her brother and they did knock. >> reporter: representatives for olango's family says he was suffering some sort breakdown. his sister asking the question echoing in this community this morning. >> why couldn't you tase him? i told you he's sick. you guys shot him. >> reporter: now this memorial has been growing overnight as has the outrage. we spent hours with those protesters last night. some of them had known alfred olango and said he did have some sort of psychological disorder and said his sister called police asking for them to help her. the last thing they expected to
7:14 am
him. robin. >> matt, thank you. now to that mystery at sea. the 22-year-old rescued from that ill-fated boat trip now saying he had nothing to do with his mother's disappearance for the murder of his grandfather nearly three years ago. abc's linzie janis spoke with him. >> reporter: this morning, nathan carman is speaking exclusively to abc news about the fishing trip that left his mother missing and him stranded at sea for more than a week. >> she'd always been kind of reluctant about guess that's -- i guess she had good reason to be. >> reporter: the 22-year-old who has asperger's syndrome says he convinced his mom linda carman to take a trip on his 32-foot boat 100 miles offshore saying she agreed partly because she didn't want him to go alone. after they arrived, the engine made a strange noise. >> i thought that i was going to diagnose the problem and that we were going to go back to shore. >> reporter: he says his mom was
7:15 am
went to gather safety gear. when suddenly the boat sank. >> i didn't know if she had been dragged down with the ship because neither of us had been wearing life vests. >> nathan swimming to the life raft bringing with him a bag containing food rations, a water desalinater, sleeping bags and flares. must have been terrifying. >> yes. >> reporter: finally after eight days, nathan was rescued. before he was back on dry land, items from his home. a search warrant revealing he's under investigation for reckless endangerment resulting in death. there's some concern that the boat was not seaworthy. was it? >> i believed it was when we left the dock. i will not have left the dock. i would not have taken my mom out fishing with me had i not believed the boat was seaworthy. >> reporter: this isn't the first time nathan's been the subject of suspicion surround a tragedy.
7:16 am
detectives said that nathan was the last to see his grandfather before the 87-year-old was shot three times. saying there were several inconsistencies in nathan's account of his whereabouts that might. >> i had absolutely nothing to do with my grandfather's death. >> reporter: nathan was never charged and the crime remains unsolved. and overnight, nathan's father coming out in his son's defense saying nathan had nothing to do with his grandfather's death and what happened to his mother was nathan telling me he is devastated about his mom but thinks she would be happy that he survived. robin. >> all right, linzie, thank you. now we turn to amy for the other top stories starting with that 9/11 bill. >> that's right. we reaction now from saudi arabia after congress voted to override president obama's veto of the so-called 9/11 lawsuit bill. it clears the way for families of september 11th victims to sue saudi arabia for its alleged role in the attacks.
7:17 am
overseas and now the saudis are warping they may scale back their cooperation with counterterrorism efforts. congress has approved a spending bill to prevent the government from shutting down. it includes $1 billion to fight the spread of the zika virus and it offers aid for victims of the flooding in louisiana and those affected by the tainted water crisis in flint, michigan. well, more u.s. troops are headed to iraq to help reclaim the city of mosul from isis. the extra 615 troops will advise the iraqi be in combat. take a look at this dramatic video from southeastern china where a typhoon triggered this landslide accepting a flood of debris sliding down that mountain. several homes were swept away. up to a foot of rain turned streets into rivers and unfortunately dozens of people are missing. well, if you thought things got heated between donald trump and hillary clinton, i'd like you to take a look at what happened during this debate in the former soviet republic of
7:18 am
look at the news anchor trying to break it up. the fight continued off camera. last week two other candidates brawled on live television as well. there's till a week to go. that news anchor, i'd been out of there trying to break it up. no job worth that. >> here it would be pan that camera over there and get the fight. >> no. >> let's go back over to ginger. look ahe hail in virginia. so strong storms with this low that will sit and northeast the next couple of days. that's why we're on flash flood alert. washington, d.c., baltimore, you see the hail there. but there is a lot of rain coming your way. anyone in blue there or certainly in red where we have flash flood warnings, there are roads closed in north carolina. look up there, detroit even on
7:19 am
mostly cloudy, showers and storms throughout the day will be on and off coming in off of the and the additional cloud cover not as warm from 87 back down to 82. more rain chances about 40 to 50% after a few days. that continues, by the way, heading into the weekend with high temperatures in the upper 80s. overnight lows dropping back in the mid-70s. that's your seven-day forecast. now back to gma. i say after the rain, it always comes the rainbow.
7:20 am
kenosha, wisconsin, over lake michigan. >> thanks for sharing that. a wink. i like that. when we come back, coming up we'll go one-on-one with amanda knox. she is here live. she's speaking out about the night that changed her life. what she's revealing. it's a brand-new documentary that is coming out and it's an abc news exclusive next. fisherm. i accept i'm not out on the ocean wrestling marlin. i even accept i have a higher risk of stroke due to afib, a type of irregular heartbeat lve problem. but i won't go after anything with less than my best. so if i can go for something better than warfarin, i'll do that too. eliquis. eliquis reduced the risk of stroke better than warfarin. plus, it had significantly less major bleeding than warfarin. eliquis had both. that's what i wanted to know. don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious
7:21 am
ke eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily. and it may take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis make increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. i may not be going for the big one, but i'm still going for my best. and for eliquis. reduced risk of stroke, plus less major bleeding.

7:30 am
bake fresh foccacia and hand-slice avocado. there's nothing "or something" about it. if i'm innocent it means that everyone is vulnerable. and that's everyone's nightmare. >> we welcome you back to "gma." amanda knox opening up in a new documentary about being at the center of that famous murder case. she is joining us live here in the studio. our exclusive interview with amanda k look forward to hearing that. investigators searching for a motive after a teen opened fire on an elementary school playground injuring three people. one still in critical condition this morning. the shooter now in custody. take a look at this terrifying kidnapping caught on tape. you see a man armed with a hammer grabbing a california store clerk. drag her away. forcing her into his car. the kidnapper takes the victim to a north hollywood cemetery where she was able to escape and
7:31 am
first at bat. that was the first pitch. the first pitch that he faced and, boom. >> i thought you're not supposed to swing at the first pitch. >> worked for him. >> talking about it this morning. >> yes, we are. but first that story that captivated the world. amanda knox caught in the middle of a murder case while studying abroad nine years ago. that night changed her life and now the focus of a netflix documentary, going to hear from amanda knox in a moment but first abc's neal karlinsky has more details. >> did you kill meredith kercher? >> reporter: just when you thought you heard everything about the amanda knox case comes
7:32 am
the true crime documentary airing this week on netflix complete with fresh and at times chilling new interviews. >> if i'm guilty, it means that i am the ultimate figure to fear. >> reporter: knox this college student accused of murdering her college roommate meredith kercher in perugia, italy in 2007, convicted, freed. convicted again only to be found no italy's highest court last year. but a huge chunk of the public remains skeptical about her which the documentary feeds on. the film includes knox's former boyfriend and one-time co-defendant. >> i known her only for five days. >> reporter: and the man portrayed in some western media as the real villain, the prosecutor who expresses some of his own less than scientific theories. asking why was kercher covered in a blanket.
7:33 am
this. but at the center of it all is knox, branded foxy knoxy in headlines around the word. she's now a writer for a small newspaper in seattle. new interviews cast her as mysterious as ever. >> either i'm a psychopath in sheep's clothing or i am you. >> reporter: for "good morning america," neal karlinsky, abc news, seattle. >> and amanda knox joins us now. good to see you again. >> good to see you again. >> could we start with that last statement that you it's so provocative and that's the way you decided to portray yourself -- that's who you are in this documentary. explain a little bit more about. >> well, i think i'm trying to explain what it feels like to be wrongfully convicted. either to be this terrible monster or a regular person who is vulnerable and what i'm trying to convey is that a regular person like me, just a kid who was studying abroad who
7:34 am
they're portrayed as something that they're not. >> i can't help but think about the last time that you were sitting here, january 2014. you had the conviction had stood again and then the following year it's overturned again. just the emotional roller coaster and many want to know why now? why are you deciding with this documentary now? >> well, now my attention is turning towards the because my name is cleared. i'm fine, you know, i'm moving on with my life. i'm going back to graduate school. i'm redeveloping my relationships, i'm redeveloping my relationship with freedom. but there remains the fact that i'm in a unique position as an exonoree. i can't go back to my life i had before neither can the other who is are out there and a lot of times their stories go
7:35 am
our moral duty to examine the cases of wrongfully convicted people from the perspective of their humanity and to really demand we have objective looks at their cases and the facts of their case as well as them as people, as opposed to demonizing them the way that i was. >> and the facts of the case and that's what this documentary. will we learn anything new. there's some people, i don't have to tell you, some people will n are innocent and there are others who feel that you have been wronged. i mean there's like two camps here. is there anything new that's going to shed any light in this documentary? >> you know, what i really appreciate about this documentary is that they -- it's good journalism in the sense that they give you the facts of the case, the reliable facts of the case and they say, decide for yourself. and the other thing that they do is they ground the case and the
7:36 am
people who implement it and who are a part of it so by showing who was a part of it, not just me, not just my co-defendant but the prosecutor and the media, they're shedding more light on what happened than all the speculation that's been put out there combined. >> especially when you are going to see the prosecutor as he is portrayed in the documentary is different than people think. i know that your motivation is to help. you could have sold this for a great deal of money and put it up on the big people that are involved in this documentary say you are not receiving a paycheck for this. that you want to help people. but when you think about meredith's family, do you think about how this is for them to relive it and to have the story out here again. >> oh, my gosh. it's -- for them, that's never going to end and that's the really sad part about this tragedy is that as soon as the prosecutor made it about like it
7:37 am
her and what the truth was about what happened to her. and, you know, she's been lost in all of that. and -- but that doesn't change the fact that we have also an obligation to everyone that could potentially be innocent to like find out the truth for the sake of the victim and for the sake of them, as well. >> your life now? >> my life now is -- i mean, i'm -- it's been a year since i've been like redeveloping like i said this relationship with the world where i'm not being hunted down and on the one hand i have -- like i'm writing, i'm with my family, i'm with my friends, i have great relationships and on the other hand i also want to like continue to put forth my passion for these people. like i've healed because other people have reached out to me.
7:38 am
negative thing that happened to me put on them because their stories are important and i don't think we quite recognize that yet. >> and thank you for sharing your story and coming here. >> thank you. >> as you have over the years. wish you all the best. the new netflix documentary "amanda knox" is available tonight right after midnight. coming up on our big board, the new app that says it can help prevent sexual assault on why some think it could make the problem worse. all the networks are great now. we're talking within a 1% difference in reliability of each other. and, sprint saves you 50% on most current national carrier rates. save money on your phone bill, invest it in your small business. wouldn't you love more customers? i would definitely love some new customers. sprint will help you add customers and cut your costs. switch your business to sprint and save 50% on most current verizon, at&t and t-mobile rates. don't let a 1% difference cost you twice as much.

7:40 am
time now for the big board. our team of insiders standing by live to talk about today's stories including t.j. holmes. there's this brand-new app on college campuses. what is it. >> a sexual consent app. what happens, two people get hot and heated and one pulling out a phone, read this, initial here,
7:41 am
and sign here and now let's get it on. >> kind of a mood killer. >> complete mood killer. the idea here, the creators say is you're creating a legal binding document of concept and intent. they put these things together, specifically for college campuses to combat what they say is the problem of sexual assault on campus. you eliminate any ambiguity. it's clear and you're making a record of it. >> there is a lot of issues wi h apps like this. another one called good to go. that one s there are a lot of concerns -- one is that i personally when i read it said, well, what it somebody is -- they say no. >> that is the biggest issue that people have. several issues that are obvious but that's the biggest one, what if you change your mind. you are giving essentially a potential rapist evidence to exonerate themselves later on because you give concept -- it gives you no way to go back and change your mind. these things are created. what person, people think it's
7:42 am
fill it out. that's another problem. >> they say it's not legally binding. >> the people that put it together say it is. we don't have a test case yet but it goes to a server that only police can access, a disciplinary board at a school or by subpoena. >> jen ashton, what do you think. >> i mean i think it's probably a good idea and well intentioned but let's talk about the fact the name sasie is almost a play on words to say yes and i don't think we need any more of this problems than good things. >> i think in theory it sounds good but i just think execution may be lacking. >> they want to start the conversation. even if it's just not about the consent but gets two people to talk about affirmative concept and what it means. >> you stay right there. we'll talk about this. a new study that can explain why some of us age faster and why george does not age at all, people. researchers at ucla suggesting
7:43 am
naturally faster aging rates. >> yeah. >> dr. ashton, what exactly is this study saying. >> first of all, in medical school doctors -- we're trained to actually assess someone's appearance with respect to their age because the thinking even in the past was that how someone appears externally may indicate what's going on internalle ali with the aging process. now, this latest study found that while lifestyle, yes, absolutely, behaviors are important. it's actually what's going on in our ge that may actually be more important. the good news, both represent targets for intervention whether with changes or with medication and, in fact, the fda just approved a trial to study a drug called matformin used in type two diabetics as a longevity drug. you'll hear a lot more about this in the future. >> we'll come back to you but want to move on to lucy

8:12 am
8:13 am
8:14 am
we welcome you back to "gma." our audience gearing up for some great fashion deals and staels. first that parenting dilemma. these photos raising a big question. if you think someone is going too far disciplining a child in public should you intervene? the mom who took these photos did and mara schiavocampo has her story. good morning, mara. >> reporter: good morning. that woman didn't just take picture, she put them on social media and her post went viral with ten o comments and shares. she says that girl was crying and begging her father to stop and when he wouldn't, she stepped in to force him. erika burch was shopping at her local walmart in texas when she saw this, a father appearing to pull his daughter's hair while he pushed the grocery cart. >> i said, you need to let her hair go now and he told me i needed to mind my own business. and i said right now that little girl is my business and you're
8:15 am
the dad and alerting authorities, the mother of four posted this photo to facebook. shared more than 242,000 times with at least 24,000 comments and over 42,000 likes. >> i received over 900 private messages in my facebook. >> reporter: so many comments calling erika a hero saying bless you for helping a child and glad you confronted him but others writing, she needs >> i don't care what they think. i know it's wrong and i don't regret doing it. >> reporter: ultimately the child was allowed to leave the store with her father and now the local police department has filed this report for possible injury to a child. child protective services joining the investigation. telling abc news that while investigations are confidential, it is typical that cps will meet with the family including all the children in the home and determine if the family could
8:16 am
parenting classes or counseling. as for erika burch she said she would step in again. >> i'm not the president. i was just some, you know, somebody shopping in the grocery store. it's not okay to pull a child by the hair of their head. i don't care what they've done. >> very powerful pictures. burch says of the almost 900 private messages she received most were congratulating her for stepping in. as for that investigation, part of the reason officials say they let the girl go h father is because she didn't have any visible injuries. robin. >> martha, thank you. joining us ericka souter and dr. richard besser. thank you. let's get into this. all right. now, there is a distinct line and a difference between discipline and abuse. ericka, do you think this woman did the right thing. >> i do think she did the right thing. you are allowed to discipline your child. so if you see something happening i'd ask yourself does
8:17 am
injured or assaulted? that should be a barometer. but there are risks associated with that. now, the parent who's doing the hitting could turn their rage toward you so you kind of have to be prepared for the situation kind of turning into something bigger. >> rich, do you think it's okay to intervene. >> as a pediatrician the rules for me are different. i'm required by law if i think a child is being harmed to step in and report it. for the public there's no legal requirement but i think there's a moral he or she saw something going on in public that was wrong. this child was being emotionally abused in public and so she stepped in. that was a brave thing to do but when you do that, you know, you want to speak up. you want to try to de-escalate so understand you're dealing with a parent who's frustrated and so using a calm voice is important but if you think the child is actually being harmed and that doesn't work dialing 911 is appropriate. >> we heard in mara's report a lot weighed in on this and it's
8:18 am
favor of the woman who stepped in but there were some that said something like this, ericka. he was not beating -- referring to the father, he was not beating her or verbally abusing, erika burch needs to mind her own business. a lot of comments like that, as well. is there like a social taboo if it's not your child not to step in. >> seen a lot of cases on the other end where a parent lets their kids playout side in a yard and some neighbor or pass er saying they're any flecked. there is a moral barometer that you really -- can you live with the fact that if you see something terrible happening to a child and you walk away, is that going to stay with you. then you think about, you know, this is the way parents acting in public how are they dealing with that child at home so you have to decide on your own how to react. >> speaking about doing it in public, the child has -- what is a ramification for a child that's being dealt like that publicly. >> yeah, i mean when you think
8:19 am
physical abuse that, you know, everyone understands what that is but there's also emotional abuse and shaming and humiliating in public is a form of emotional abuse. long-term those children are going to have trust issues. here you have the person that they look to for security who's shaming them in public. long-term that's not a good thing and hopefully child services will give them the tools they need. >> we don't have much time. the top tip you could give to parents dealing with this. >> stay calm. it's very hard to do but if you need to take ten s count backwards and not react aggressively with anger, with violence, that's incredibly important and don't be afraid to ask for help. every parent around you has gone through it and all been pushed to the brink. >> can i just say you are glowing. >> thank you very much. congratulations. >> thank you. >> yes. >> you got that glow. thank you both very much. dr. besser will be taking your questions on twitter. coming up what experts say kate and will's body language very veries about their relationship. come on back.
