Syria's children cope with daily violence

Concerns are mounting that an entire generation of children could be left with psychological scars.

    The conflict in Syria has raged on for so long - 18 months - that for children there, war is now the stressful norm.

    For these children, political chants and the sounds of explosions are becoming a part of daily life, even as shortages in baby formula and vital medications mean surviving day to day has become a challenge in and of itself.

    But now there are concerns that an entire generation of children could be left with psychological scars.
