How to talk to your teen about colluding with Russia

4 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

In the spirt of Trump defending his young son's colluding with Russia by claiming that anyone would have done it, the following is a public service:

"Even the best-behaved teen is likely to encounter a situation where he or she is tempted to collude with Russia. Unfortunately for parents, a teen’s natural tendency to test the limits of independence can often manifest itself in his or her exchanging sensitive information with Russian emissaries for material or other rewards. If not constructively addressed during adolescence, colluding with Russia can have much more serious consequences in adulthood.

Here are a few tips for engaging in a healthy conversation with your teen about the hazards of colluding with Russia..."

 

Explain the Negative Consequences of Colluding With Russia

When talking to your teen about colluding with Russia honesty is the best policy. You shouldn’t shy away from mentioning that a Federal indictment could turn into an awkward blemish on a college application, or that retributive Polonium poisoning could likely hamper one’s ability to compete for a coveted lacrosse scholarship. Remind them also that sharing their behavior on social media is never a good idea. Posting a selfie with a Russian aluminum magnate or “checking in” to a Kremlin safe house can have ramifications that are difficult to erase later on.

Understand Your Teen Will Likely Experiment at Some Point

Parents must be realistic and remember that despite their best efforts their teen will try colluding with Russia at a party, in their friend’s basement, or even in a hotel room after the prom. Your teen should understand that if he has been out late colluding with Russia he should never, under any circumstances, get in a car — especially a nondescript windowless van with diplomatic license plates. He should understand that you will come get him and give him a ride home no questions asked!"

I spoke briefly to a couple of teens during the presidential campaign. I found out that most teens have no clue about how it works. A lot of them told me "We like Bernie". So I asked them why they said "We'll get free college and medicare for everybody". I asked how he will pay for it, they looked at me like , duh......"the government will pay for it". So, I'm not sure they are ready for a political collusion discussion. Good luck with that. :lol:

I talked to some teens who didn't realize Hillary Clinton's husband was Bill.

And don't forget to always use a condom - those female Russian lawyers can carry all kinds of nasty diseases. :lol:
