Don’t discuss politics in front of them. I knew who Ronald Reagan was as a kid, but I never had any ill feelings towards him. Fast forward 30 years, and as an adult I can handle the truths regarding his presidency as well as the presidents that followed. Children are not equipped to handle politics. Until they have a deeper understanding of the world, it is not necessary to bruise their innocence with the harsh truths.

Take Care. Take care of yourself. Whether you stand on the red or blue side of politics, it is important to care for yourself after the outcome of the election. This will help inform the amount of care that you can give to your child.

Enjoy Life. If you look at your Facebook timeline, there is a level of unhealthy divisiveness that is permeating society. However, in the real world, most people are more together than you think. Do random acts of kindness for others, and help join others together to create a better world. We are all in this together.
