Based on overhearing their friends at school, our children (ages 13, 10, 8) are forming their opinions taken from playground chatter. At home, they’re chanting their candidate’s names (“Hillary, Hillary” or “No, the Donald”) and arguing about who’s best, causing disruption. It has turned into a unique type of sibling rivalry.
