We have been reading SO many tweets about ‘woke’ children and quite honestly we hope these people are lying because otherwise, this is seriously eff’d up. Like this tweet from an ‘angry feminist’ first, and a mom second, about how she ASKED her five-year-old to protest with her this weekend.
Why would you ever ask a five-year-old that?
I asked my 5 year old if she wanted to come to a protest with me this weekend. Once I had explained what we were protesting, she looked at me with tears in her eyes and said “what if they take me away, too?”
I don’t know how to have these conversations with my kids

Ok, here’s an idea, maybe DON’T have those conversations with your kids because THEY’RE KIDS.
Talk to them about summer break, having fun, reading books … you know, KID STUFF.
Perhaps you should have told her that she won’t be separated from you unless you commit a federal crime. https://t.co/UPJkKM3dzq

Fair point. If she’s going to have that conversation with a kiddo who may not even be in grade school yet she should probably explain why these kids are separated and that as long as her own mother doesn’t commit a crime she’s fine.
Seriously, we’re just hoping this is a lie for attention.
My 4 month old daughter was doing some burpees this morning and between sets she said, "Patriarchal white colonizer, why do people make up shit about what their kids say for twitter ❤️s"?
I didn't know what to tell her so a screeched like an eagle and I think she understood.

Awww, that makes sense.
These same people probably ask the baby for consent to change its diaper.

Don’t give them any ideas.
So this “my young child asked…how do I answer…” scenario is their new tactic, apparently. Second post in as many days that I’ve seen…there must be thousands more out there.

This never happened. She typed every single word of that Tweet praying it would get retweeted and liked a bunch.

We really, really hope so.
My 5 year old Daughter; Mom, if you commit a crime will the police take you away from me? Me; Yes, they will, so don’t worry, I won’t!

Welp, that seems simple.
My 8 1/2 year old son was listening with me to your podcast yesterday. I explained what the separation debate was all about. His immediate idea: maybe the best solution is that the family stay together in their own country instead of breaking the law.

Hey, it’s possible.
This is what happens when millennials are old enough to start raising their own kids. The generations are becoming weaker and weaker. 5 year old gonna start coordinating pre school walkouts.

Again, let’s not give them ANY ideas.
