day 10 | slice of life challenge

I am a Canadian and married to an American. When we hear Trump speaking in the news, I am baffled and disturbed by the way he talks to people and about people.

Everyday we help our students learn how to problem-solve with empathy, kindness and respect. We model how to be caring and strong without name-calling and put-downs. 

Shouldn't a President be a role model for our youth?


  1. I think about that all the time! Not only our presidential candidates, but many other adult role models as well - we don't always show what we tell!!

  2. I am alarmed, Loralee, and wonder too about the model being applauded, and by their parents, too. I am hopeful that there are many of us who decry the behavior, and the elections will result in better! Thanks for your words!

  3. I think it's a hopeful sign that many are alarmed - and I hope parents are having these conversations with their kids, too.


Thank you for being here.
