America changed drastically last night. In a little over two months, Donald Trump will be president. His party will control congress. He gets to make a crucial Supreme Court appointment. This will be Trump’s America. Whether this frightens you or not, it is your job as a parent to keep things in perspective.
If you wanted Trump to win, you’re probably just fine. If so, please try to talk about it in an informative and constructive way. Trump is not just your president – he is our president, whether we are happy about it or not. And America needs people to understand and respect each other, now and always.
If you didn’t want a Trump victory, you might be very afraid right now. It’s easy to tell a kid there’s nothing in the closet. It’s much harder when what you’re afraid of is not only real, but running the country. How do you handle that, let alone discuss it with a child?
