has lost now his son, his 6-year-old daughter lost a leg, and his wife is still in critical condition. >> it's going to be a difficult road. >> and i guess there's one other daughter who is okay, thank god. the second victim has now been named. >> 29-year-old krystle campbell of medford, massachusetts. another one of those heart-wrenching stories that her dad was told -- >> don't we all have a friend that looks just like her? >> yeah. her dad was told that she was okay and it turned out that it was a case of mistaken identity, that her friend was actually okay and she had passed away. >> she was just there to watch her friend's boyfriend come over the finish line. >> the third was a chinese national, a grad student and her name is not being released at this point. i actually heard someone on the news talking about how they were down there at the area this morning, or late last night -- >> are they letting people in now? >> they're making a smaller crime scene.
2:06 am
a guy who had a clarinet in a case. he was walking across the street and there were a lot of people just gathering and walking and standing there. they said he opened up that clarinet, he played "the star-spangled banner" pitch-perfect, and everyone stopped and applauded. >> that would have devastated me. >> it was like a moment. and it just talked about how people come together. >> we have different ways of grieving and grieving is such an essential part of life. you have to grieve or you can't move on. the trouble is that when people choose to continue grieving long after it's healthy to keep doing so. i think we're very much in the grief mode. it's interesting how soon life gets back to normal. we were talking about when we lost our beloved dads, how bizarre it is for you to be immersed in your grief and all of a sudden you look around and people are going about their normal days. we're like, how can you do that? don't you realize what just
2:07 am
happened? we're self-absorbed creatures by nature. it doesn't mean we're bad, it's just that we're all about us. and if it didn't affect you personally, then we just seem to move on to how much weight has kim kardashian gained? which is sad, i think. even "people" magazine, i'm kind of surprised today -- this is still such a brand-new tragedy, and it's a crime, let's not forget that -- here's trisha yearwood whom we love, and that's the main story, how much weight she's lost in a short amount of time. on the side, the story -- i'm just surprised by that. >> "people" usually does the, you know, the big news story on the front. i'm not sure what went on in the discussion, but i think it is one of those things that it is everywhere. i was watching different news
2:08 am
places last night and then you flip on "access hollywood" and "extra," and it's wall-to-wall "access" and "extra," and it's all about the marathon, celebs reacting, who was down there, like it's all about it. so there isn't really a way not to see it or not to be exposed. i wonder if "people" thought about, it's in so many places we're going to cover it and we'll do it our way kind of thing. >> they made their own decisions, but we have the right to respond as human beings and citizens. i thought it was interesting to talk about the people who commute here to new york. after the 9/11 attacks, that's all any of us spoke about for months, right? months. even on a 6:00 train yesterday, it wasn't the subject of conversation on a new york train, nor was it this morning coming in, in light of the images we have seen.
2:09 am
maybe people just have become -- >> i think this one really hit people. i'm not sure why people weren't talking about it, but to me because it happened in such an iconic place, such a public place where anyone could have walked by, i think it affected a lot of people. >> that surprised me. >> here's a good quote. mister rogers always comes to the rescue. >> he was always so honest about everything. >> a great quote that went viral. here's the quote. it says, "when i was a boy and i would see scary things in the news, my mother would look to me and say, look for the helpers. you will always find people who are helping." i love that. >> it moves me so much, because he was a friend of mine and a neighbor of mine in nantucket. one of the sweetest men. he would sit like that. he was so real. you realized how did mister rogers become mister rogers? it was because of his mom. you know, that's a window into
2:10 am
how that human being came to be. he was shown the way to be that kind of person. >> i think as parents struggle to figure out what to say to their kids, that's perfect. >> we were talking about that yesterday in our chat, about look at the people that are going the other direction towards it. we saw so many stories like that of heroism. >> we sure did. >> during 9/11. you say it's the basic nature to be selfish, i think it's also the best part of our nature is to be responsive to people of need. >> "people" magazine did make a statement about their magazine cover. they said the boston bombing is the cover for the east coast, and trisha yearwood is the cover for the west coast, that's how they chose to do it. we must have a west coast version. >> well, they are in business and answering to stockholders. it struck me as strange. let's lighten things up a little bit. "the voice" was on last night.
2:11 am
this is the fun part where they do the battle rounds where it's one on one -- >> and i don't watch on purpose so you can tell me all about it i'm just going to listen. >> no, you can watch. the first team, team adam, a woman named judith and corina, and they are singing "it's a man's world." who would you pick? ♪ it's a man's world a man's world ♪ ♪ but it would be nothing without a woman ♪ who would you have chosen? >> i would have chosen the woman singing right now. >> and you would have chosen the way adam did. he chose judith. did the other girl get stolen? >> yes. team shakira.

2:13 am
ended up going to team adam. >> how many times can you steal? >> i think that's it. just a couple. i love this next story. >> what is it? bradley cooper -- they're making such a big deal about it. bradley cooper in the may issue of "details" says he's revealed he's lived with his mom the last two years. his father died two years ago and he said -- this is where we are, my family is very close, and my dad dying was brutal for all of us, it was a schism, and the aftershock has not stopped and we need each other, so here we are. he didn't move back into his childhood home as a -- i don't know how old he is, he moved his mom in with him. which makes me, if it's possible, love him even more than i did before. >> i have to say, you know, so many people luke your mom lives here and you live here, and i understand everyone needs their lives, but in other places around the world people take
2:14 am
care of their parents. >> that's what cultures have always done. >> yes. >> i think it's important we take care of one another. eventually that would be you some day, hody. anyway, we are going to have a contest for the most deserving mom. today we are launching that contest. it is sponsored by the most deserving mom will win a vacation and sail anywhere in the world on a norwegian cruise line of her choice. >> europe, alaska, bermuda, hawaii. go to >> write an essay. the good part is even if you don't have anyone around you who thinks you're terrific, you can write it yourself. >> you can write your own essay? that's so crazy. you have until tuesday, april 30th. two finalists, you're both going to come to new york, and then we'll reveal the one who wins on may 9th. >> that's great. that's great. a sad note in the world today, especially for us and our family. pat summerall passed away yesterday down in texas.

2:39 am
something most of us have resorted to at some point or another, promising some kind of reward to motivate your kids to clean their rooms or do better in school. >> whether it's candy or money or a trip to the movies, some rewards teach good behavior while others could be harmful in the long run. here to sort it all out is stacy kaiser, host of "fatal" -- since when? >> r.g. is here, a family therapist. good to see you again. >> you're very busy. >> i love to hang out with you guys. >> i think parents wants to take the path of least resistance. they know the way to get it done is if you put a carroll in front of your child, boom, less conflict. >> you're slightly right, but that carrot teaches them to taste the carrot, basically.

>> and they know how to take advantage of the situation, too, with one parent against the other, don't they? >> yes, and that splitting behavior, that doesn't really work. at the end of the day, you're not teaching them responsibility, you're teaching them entitlement. >> that's the question, isn't it? do we reward them for what is expected or reward them for going beyond what is expected? >> i expected my kids to do their homework, brush their teeth. that kind of stuff. when is a reward the right thing? >> when it's a celebration. it isn't to incentivize you or bribe you, but to celebrate what you're doing. you got the big report card and then the big celebration. we're going to do a special movie or family night, because you worked so hard. >> what's wrong with giving the child $5 per "a." >> i don't agree with that. to a certainly degree, it's like -- it's what they're supposed to. it's what's expected of them.

2:42 am
treat everybody exactly the same? >> i don't like that. first of all, we're all different. we need to celebrate our uniqueness. if you tell someone you're a winner, they may not work as hard. >> i think you have to focus on the individuality of each child. you shouldn't compare to the other sibling. when you're saying that, suzy did better than you, that won't work well for your child. >> absolutely graciously, too. and thanks, ladies, a lot of wisdom right here. fresh from the sea, classic dishes from maine.
