The first part of the book - 18 short commentaries by minority parents and how their children fear of Trump's constant assault on our society's vulnerables. The second - the author's suggestions on how parents can mollify their children's fear of Trump. The first part eloquently ends thusly - "What do you say to kids when a man whom they have been (rightly) brought up to regard as a monstrous figure is suddenly the president we have?" -- "The strangest element of this sad time is surely that our departing president, a model of eloquence and reason, is leaving office --- How Trump's strange rise and Obama's high rating can have coincided in the same moment will remain one of the permanent conundrums of our history."
