Betty Friedan introduces her latest book, "The Fountain of Age," in which she argues that America's obsession with youth and exaggerated stereotypes of aging leads to dread and denial of growing old. With half a million kids in foster care in America, author Susan Sheehan and teenagers Wunika Hicks and Carlford Wadley look at the flaws in the institution and suggest necessary reforms.
