ann curry is in pakistan with the very latest. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you, natalie. pakistan is on the defensive about why it took so long to find osama bin laden, the government actually saying it's an intelligence failure by the whole world not just pakistan, but one official is willing to call it an embarrassment that he was found just 35 miles away in islamabad. they're keeping people away from the house where osama bin laden was killed on sunday, but we were able to take a walk around and we saw that there were young people still finds pieces of helicopter wreckage. the overwhelming feeling here is of disbelief. people here say that they will not believe that osama bin laden was ever even here unless they see dna evidence or medical records or some kind of photographs, evidence of his body. in fact, one national security, former national security official, national security --
sorry -- official said with all due respect he believes president obama is making a mistake in not releasing a photograph of osama bin laden's body because he said the world needs proof, and without it, there is a chance that osama bin laden could gain mythical status, natalie. >> ann curry continuing with the reports in pakistan. thanks so much, ann. the mississippi river is swelling to what could become its highest levels in nearly a century, forcing thousands to leave their homes from illinois to louisiana. rising slowly, the worst flooding could still be a week away as the communities ban together to try to safeguard their towns. in missouri army engineers have demolished parts of the levee to help divert waters, a strategy that is now being considered along other locations along the river. workers have entered the plant for the first time since the immediate aftermath of the earthquake and tsunami. workers are instafling ventilation machines. general motors is recalling

topic. it's one of those things we all mention or discuss at home. but there's science behind it. why do we cry? not based on gender but why do people cry? >> anthropologists never knows. no other animal cries. it's such an honest signal. you cannot fake crying. actors can. they move their face into a position that triggers the muscles and brain that starts crying but to the rest of us it's an honest signal and people immediately stop and pay attention to you. it's a very effective deal dealing with your husband or wife or social group or even with your children. so it's an honest signal. >> so do men cry less than women, or are we better at, say, holding back? we're more emotionally stunted so we don't release those emotions? >> i don't want to call it's motionally stunted. i think there's good evolutionary reasons why men can
do that. for millions of years men needed to protect the group and not show their weakness. but we know testosterone puts on the brakes. when the tess when tesses to trone kicks in. they think of ways to stop crying. they'll cry to mem rice the gettysburg address or come up with baseball scores because they don't want that vulnerability. >> if that's the case for men, why do women like to own turning on the waterworks. >> first of all the gland, the tear duct is smaller in women so when it wells up, they well up faster. >> our glands are smaller and we hold fewer tears. >> we don't hold them as well. they pour out so we give that signal. you know, there's studies in 22
societies around the world and everywhere women are more emotionally expressive. one of the reasons is because they've got more prolack tin. >> what's prolack tin? >> it's a largely female hormone and actually is a catalyst that makes tears and so women are capable of making more tears. and then, again, we also -- we're not afraid of crying. vulnerability gets women something that it doesn't get men. >> like what? >> well, you know, when a man and woman are in an argument, a woman will start to cry and instantly he'll stop. instantly he'll pay attention. instantly he'll try to give her what she needs. you know, for millions of years women have not been incredibly physically powerful so that they're emotionally powerful. >> but it hurts us, too, because if you cry in the workplace or your husband sees you crying it may start an irritant in that person as they feel helpless when you start crying.
>> particularly in the workplace. this is where women don't want to cry. >> does it hurt men as well as women in a man is seen crying at work? >> i think it is. it's more unacceptable for a man to cry at work than it is for women and it's probably been more unacceptable for 4 million years. >> why do we feel better after crying. >> they wonder that, whether we're actually getting rid of various toxic chemicals. they've not been able to prove that but there are lots of bee havl studies that show that we actually do feel better after crying. it's probably the expression of the emotions. the response of all the people around us who pull us in, help us with our problems. >> but have we got on the the point where we do encourage our small boys to -- are you seeing a social logical change or anthropological change? >> i do. i think when teen age comes on, it's harder for men to do that.
men feel their emotions. they have much more emotional flooding. they're betting at emotionally containing themselves probably because of the testosterone, but they can go over the eng. >> thank you so much. coming up next, michael or daniel, alexander or emily. one of the most popular baby names in america. we'll find out o after these messages.

[ male announcer ] new eggo thick and fluffy waffles. this morning on "parents today," it's child mental awareness day. is your child falling behind in school or having trouble making friends? these may actually warrant signs that need attention. the president of the child mind institution and die an, the deputy editor of "parents" magazine and they're partners in
the speak-up campaign. nice to have you here for such an important cause. let me tell you why. if you look at these numbers, more than 15 million children in america have psychiatric disorder is. half never receive help. 75% of all psychiatric illnesses occur before the age of 24 and 50% before the age of 14. given these numbers, why aren't we take children's mental health more seriously? >> the big problem is still a lot of shame. if you think back 40, 50 years ago, people used to whisper canc cancer. today we're doing the same thing. unfortunately left untreated, kids with psychiatric disorders are likely to have ak demming failure, substance abuse, dropouts. 5,000 teenagers this year will kill themselves and 600,000 will actually make a serious enough attempt that they'll land in the hospital. >> third leading cause of death. >> actually 14 to 24. but the more important thing is
more kids have these disorders than all the kids who have aids, diabetes, heart disease combined, and yet we tend to ignore these kids. >> and diane, is the reason we're ignoring it, is it because of that social stigma we talked about or is it something more like parents look back at their own history or cases of mental illness in their family that they don't want to own up to that? >> i think it's very difficult for parents know whether their child's behavior is normal or not. i think they want to believe that if a child is having difficulties that he's going to grow out of it and i think it's typical for a parent to wait two years before taking a child with a typical mental health problem in. that's unfortunate. >> what are some symptoms parents should be looking for in children's behavior? >> they have to know their kids. they have to know how they sleep, what kind of social life do they lead? are they outgoing? are they a shy kid?
do they love sports? when does it change? when you see your kid has stress or dysfunction, he didn't want go to school or he can't sit still or he's come plank, parents should see the red flag. if a child has rash, you wouldn't wait four days. you look at it, call a pediatrician. if a kid's not functioning or not happy, call the pediatrician. number two go see someone. you can go for a symptom checker do, i really have to worry about my kids. >> diana, i know this is something that the readers of your magazine, i'm sure they talk a lot about this and write a lot about this, their children's behavior. what do they say about what they notice in kids' behavior and especially when it deals with bullying nowadays that we hear so much about. can some of that play into what could be going on in terms of mental health? >> there's so many reasons for
why a child acts difficult. there's a lot of guilt and embarrassment. parents worry if their child has a problem, people are going to look at them and thing that they're a bad parent and they hesitate to get help because of, that but that's really unfortunate because it's not the parent's fault. >> sudden change, too, we can't forget about that. in the case of sudden death or divorce in family, those impact a child's mental health as well. what should you do to get them need? >> again, we're here in a celebration, again, 9/11 was so many years ago and we feel in some ways relieved. after 9/11 or any traumatic event, certain kids are more sensitive. that's, again, when you have to be on the lookout. i think diana's right. it's not bad parenting that causes these disorders but it takes excellent parenting to make it better. that's what parents need to do. >> good point to end on. thank you. thanks so much for coming to us and raising our attention to it.
