Teddy bears, Play-Doh and coloring books are staples of nursery schools, but now they are showing up on college campuses to help distraught students cope with the election of a president they don’t like.

Around the nation, students are turning to the tools of toddlers as a bizarre form of therapy in the wake of Donald Trump's election last week. Colleges and universities are encouraging students to cry, cuddle with puppies and sip hot chocolate to soothe their fragile psyches, an approach some critics say would be funny if it weren't so alarming.

Cornell University recently hosted a “cry-in,” complete with hot chocolate and tissues for disappointed Hillary Clinton supporters.

University of Pennsylvania brought in a puppy and a kitten for therapeutic cuddling.
Tufts University held arts and crafts sessions for students.

University of Michigan Law School scheduled an event for this Friday called “Post-Election Self-Care With Food and Play” with “stress-busting self-care activities” including coloring, blowing bubbles, sculpting with Play-Doh and “positive card making.”

That is all the proof you need that the education system in the US needs an overhaul.

It's not just an education issue, it's how people are being raised in all aspects of society. This is the product of childless "intellectuals" tell people how to raise kids. It's a product of a system that traps people into dependency. It's no wonder Trump is so scary to them that they need cuddles and hot chocolate. They fear he will take away all that they depend on. Its great to see. It was nice to see America realize that and vote Trump, not for his views and policy but to say eff you to the establishment.

Mexico put their "trump contingency plan" in action.
They know they are going to have to do without the North American companies pouring $ into building plants in Mexico like they used to do.

Would that it was true, alas, this will be buffered by the intellectuals and handlers. It will be interesting to see just how much of Trump's bravado and posturing comes through unscathed. He does cast Trudeau in a flaccid light.
