Most kids would be excited.

But not the Trumps. The Trumps are luckier than most kids.

They get to go to work with their dad every day!

Donald doesn't really seem to like to do work.

He likes to watch TV and yell at strangers on the internet.

So the Trump kids have a lot of responsibility...

...even though Eric is only 33, Ivanka is only 35, Jared is only 36, and Donald Jr. is only 39.

Jared and Ivanka do a lot of important jobs for Donald — jobs that most people don't get to do without years and years of experience.

But they can do them — no sweat!

Ivanka meets with foreign leaders.

And gives speeches.

And goes to important meetings with important people.

Jared is in charge of fixing the whole government.

And making peace in the Middle East.

And fighting ISIS in Iraq.

He has to dress up like a big boy, but that's OK. Jared doesn't mind.

Then there's Donald Jr. and Eric. They run their dad’s old company, so they’re not supposed to come to his new job with him. That would be a conflict of interest.

But sometimes they do anyway. Oops!

Photo by Timothy A. Clary/Getty Images.

They even let their dad give them business advice.

Even though they're not supposed to. Talking to the president would give their company an unfair advantage over other companies.

Double oops!

Leaders of other countries know how much Donald loves his kids, so they like to do nice things for them.

They think if they help the Trump kids out, Donald might do nice things for their countries in return.

They listen when Ivanka asks them to give money to her new foundation.

And they let her build hotels in their countries.

Some countries help Jared build tall buildings too.

Donald was going to get tough on China.

But then a Chinese company invested in one of the buildings Jared builds.

Lately, Donald hasn't been so tough on China at all.

Photo by Jim Watson/Getty Images.

It might seem strange how much the Trumps love Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day.

Photo by Gustavo Caballero/Getty Images.

But by going to work with their dad, Ivanka, Jared, Donald Jr., and Eric are learning all about what it’s like to be a grown-up.

Photo by Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images.

They're getting hands-on experience at a real-life job.

And, best of all, they’re all making their own money!

Photo by Mandel Ngan/Getty Images.

Maybe lots and lots of it. Maybe not.

Photo by Timothy A. Clary/Getty Images.

Maybe even money from some of the countries that do nice things for them. Maybe not.

Photo by Fred Dufour/Getty Images.

We don't know because Donald hasn't released his tax returns.

Photo by Ron Sachs/Pool/Getty Images.

What a good deal for the Trumps!

Photo by Kevin Dietsch/Getty Images.

Donald smiles. He's just happy his kids are happy.

Photo by Mark Wilson/Getty Images.

And he's happy he can keep on watching TV and yelling at people on the internet.

"I'm so glad every day is Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day in our family," he probably thinks to himself.

And so it was.

(For four freaking years.)

(At least.)

(Unless you call your representatives and demand they, you know, do their jobs and start asking questions about all this. Like yesterday.)

Teacher of the year explains why he's leaving district in unforgettable 3-minute speech

"I'm leaving in hopes that I can regain the ability to do the job that I love."

Lee Allen

For all of our disagreements in modern American life, there are at least a few things most of us can agree on. One of those is the need for reform in public education. We don't all agree on the solutions but many of the challenges are undeniable: retaining great teachers, reducing classroom size and updating the focus of student curriculums to reflect the ever-changing needs of a globalized workforce.

And while parents, politicians and activists debate those remedies, one voice is all-too-often ignored: that of teachers themselves.

This is why a short video testimony from a teacher in the Atlanta suburb of Gwinnett County went viral recently. After all, it's hard to deny the points made by someone who was just named teacher of the year and used the occasion to announce why he will be leaving the very school district that just honored him with that distinction.

Nothing can ruin a relaxing weekend or holiday like an email from the office. Even if there's no need to take action until Monday, the unwanted intrusion of professional life can really suck the joy out of a Sunday afternoon barbecue.

That's why the country that's famous for giving its employees 30 days off a year and 16 weeks of full-paid family leave in May 2016 made itself even cooler with its new "right to disconnect" rule.
