President Trump is inspiring my daughter to read
On Wednesday evening. she asked if she could watch something on Netflix. I want her to practice her reading at least, so I use shows as a carrot.
"You have to read a book first," I told her.
"Do I have to?" she asked in that way that is common to 7-year-olds.
"Which president do you want to be like, President Obama or President Trump?" I asked her.
"President Obama," she said.
"Which president do you think reads more?"
She didn't even argue. She just went, picked up a stack of books, and started reading.
I think I found a bright side to the Trump presidency.
