Prestigious Colleges Offer Toddler Therapy

To meet the needs of snowflakes extending their childhoods by hiding away from reality on today’s campuses, universities have been providing toddler therapy:

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.

Even highly rated schools, including high-priced institutions in the Ivy League, have been indulging students in this surreal idiocy:

• 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 [last] 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.”

University of Michigan canceled that last one, possibly due to media attention, so some vestigial remnant of self-respect may still survive, even on university campuses.

Forget the textbooks, this is all you need.
