A Mother Tells Why Her Kids Want to Be Like Bernie
Brittany N. of Portland, Oregon says, "We have a new way to resolve fights in my house. It works great! It started when we were snuggling watching Bernie on YouTube speak in Seattle. My youngest was trying to kick the oldest off the bed.
I asked her "what would Bernie do?" She's three, so I answered for her and said that he would move over and make room. My oldest took it a step further and asked, "what would Trump do?" We decided he would kick her off the bed and then lie about it.
So then I asked the youngest "so, who do you want to be?" She answered "Bernie" and the other two yelled, "yay, be the Bern!" Since then, every fight has been resolved quickly with a "what would Bernie do?"
