Parenting in the Age of Trump . .
and Dealing with Other Challenging Role
Here’s a quick parenting quiz.
Question: “How do you spell opportunity?”
Regardless of your politics, most of us American parents agree,
there’s more profane and disgusting information leaking out of the
media and into our children’s brains than ever before in the
history of time. This information comes from Twitter, late night
comedy, football, and the weather; it’s everywhere and it presents
a direct challenge to American family values.
What’s a parent to do?
In this episode, Dr. Sara and Dr. John take on the Trump phenomenon
and although neither of them speak Latin, the bottom-line message
is “Carpe Diem!” or “Seize the day!”
On their way to seizing the day, Sara and John share their own
parental shortcomings. They also brainstorm how to respond when
teenage boys come home and say things like, “I just learned that
oral sex isn’t really sexL!” They discuss how to take
outrageous contemporary media content and use it to facilitate
children’s moral development.
If you want to face the challenge of parenting in the Trump era and
turn it into a moral development opportunity, listen to this
