7:16 am
they will play dirty do lot of thing. they want to be one of the most powerful people in the world. >> one person is doing it and they're all really kind of doing it to each other. >> some people -- i don't know why. some people they're like come on guys you're adults. you're not children. it's crazy. >> out of the mouths of babes. how do we talk to our kids about everything they're seeing and hearing. >> let's get an expert. dr. argie allen wilson is here. good morning. >> good morning, karen. good morning. >> out of the mouth of babes. >> what where do we start with this one? one of your kids is being mindful. what do you mean. you have to be mindful. your children will take those political views outside into the school yard. they're going to model what their parents are saying about what's going on the political process. be mindful of what you share
7:17 am
with them but you got to remember you got to prepare those kids for what they'll be hearing in terms of the political banter outside in the school yard. >> i want you to show you video this is going to be friday night because we're seeing it last night in kansas, we saw it the night before where we're seeing people that are actually turning to physical violence and then i want to you listen to this, some of them are even bragging about it. listen. >> he deserved it. >> what was that? >> yes, he deserved it. the next time we see him, we might have to kill him. >> seriously. how do we explain that to our children? >> one of the things you can't do is as parent you can't ignore when they're hearing those negative messages and whether they're in their lyle mile crow systems at or at home or hearing it in the media you can't ignore that. you know, i heard your piece where hillary said if you light a match you might start a fire. so you've got to tell -- let kids know this is not okay. but you also have to prepare them for what's going happen
7:18 am
when they're hearing all of this negative stuff. then help them to engage in more positive thinking because reality of it is, we're the ones that are teaching our kids to really take -- pay attention to that political process. and so helping them understand that there's a right way to disagree and there's a wrong way to disagree. karen i don't know if i'm dating myself years ago there was a thing called schoolhouse rock where you taught kids about the political process and there was really a wonderful way to help kids engage in the process and understand that even when you disagree on a position that you can talk about it in a good way and honors all the person's position even if you have a different position on it. >> if you've seen drum many can throw out the rule book and do whatever he likes, what is rea really risen is the name calling. >> yes. >> i want to show you something. listen to this. >> here's guy throwing punches nasty as hell screaming at everything else when we're tal

talking. we're not allowed -- the guards are very gentle with him he's walking out big high fives and laughing. i'd like to punch him in the face i tell you. >> when you have the grown ups trying to settle things with their fists and with language and insighting people to act, the front runner is so many people really do like trump's message. when you hear something like that, how do you sort of explain that to your children? >> you know what the kids said it the best. one of things i say hope your children to understand the political process by having campaigns where they take two different positions and then help them because you'll be surprised if you give children space to do it differently, they'll come up with strategies to be more positive about it then you don't want to hide everything from them. when you have someone that's a leader saying i'd like to punch him in the face you need to use that as teach full moment to ask kids has that ever happened to you. we're talking about something really negative. what are the ways they can really talk about doing it
7:20 am
differently and doing it better. they're not going to understand foreign policy, they're not going to understand maybe reproductive life but they can understand their history and they can understand the ways in which we can vote about the things that we really are passionate about and do it well and do it positive. >> i'm also thinking how to have dough bait bout issue and to be fiercely defend your position but to not attack the other person. we would have these dinners where we -- go all out and but it was never personal. just about the issue. we're not trying to hurt feel. we don't have to call names. >> no name calling. not talking about fighting and talking about violence and when you have leaders during to the kids said it. everybody is doing it and people are getting all rialed up. there's got to be a way it becomes infectious we dot opposite of that. we can really agree to be disagreeable without being disrespectful to each other. we've got to teach our children that and we're not be a good
7:21 am
model if they're looking at our leaders and looking at something different than being respectful. >> dr. argie, great advice. thank you for joining us and starting your day sunday with us. take care haven't a good rest of the day. >> have a good sunday. >> great segment. dave, they're continuing to tell us you're continuing to tell us we're getting tweets and so much more. will the rain hold off? >> yes, for most of the parade. this is expected now. certainly expect to see this rain developing right where it is but that sharp cut off will be from harrisburg maybe a portion of delaware county will get a little bit of rain through new castle county and south. so it will continue to fill in. look at the last few hours. it tries to move into the area but just stops right around harrisburg and southwest of philadelphia. this is this dry air in place. that's where the rain will stay throughout much of the morning. and there's a lot of it. so it looks pretty intimidating here eventually we'll get the heavy rain it looks like it ho holds off until the very end of the parade. there's that front.
