Parenting in the age of Trump, Twitter and total chaos – Chicago Tribune

Every day feels like the dawn of a whole new level of chaos that our psyches aren’t capable of processing, but our culture is perfectly suited for exploiting: Check Twitter! Check it again! What are people saying on Facebook! Oh, come ON, friend from college, you know that half-baked … wait, the White House said what? I wonder how Breitbart is playing — oh, there’s a link. Wait, my favorite thought leader has thoughts. Ack! I haven’t checked Twitter in four minutes! What if there are updates!
