LETTER: Protect your kids from the emotional harm of this virus

Northwest Florida Daily News

2020 has been a mishmash of theoretical catastrophe after catastrophe and I hate to break it to you but the people suffering the most aren’t the idiots we argue with in the comment section, they are our kids.

We have allowed media and political hysteria to filter down into our children’s lives and sent their anxiety through the roof about things that they have no business worrying about.

Coronavirus

We scare them about school, guns, viruses, racism, and police purely because the media tells us that those are the things we should both fear and be outraged over.

They see us yelling at each other over masks, distancing, not washing hands, who to vote for, who is right, and who is wrong.

It is likely that there are things in this world more important than our own self-aggrandizing, and it may be time to practice a little humility, maybe even a little understanding.

Our lives are amazing and if you can’t see that you’re spending too much time on Facebook reading what idiots like myself have to say.

Talk to your kids about how good life is, how safe we are, and let them go play with their friends outside.

I love you all.
