What my children took away from watching the first Biden/Trump debate

They walked away thinking that Biden was sad; they asked about this several times. In truth, they saw a man being bullied, silenced, and shut down. They know all about this, as every child does, and they felt empathy for Biden.

What I plan on doing about it

I’ll Inform the children about debates. The piece of television we witnessed last night is not called a conversation, argument, discussion, contest, or battle for a reason. Knowing what a debate is, what it should be, is important. The moderator himself implied this wasn’t a true debate, stating that it “went off the tracks.”
