How can I teach her to express political opinions in an appropriate manner?

​I think the first thing is to be aware that sometimes when we post things, we might offend people even if we're not aware of it. So I think it's good to prepare kids for that. But I want to give an example of a message that I feel like is really...that ​is not offensive but good. And so I think about... I don't know if you've seen the comm​ercial for the new iPhone. It's ​Maya Angelou talking about having a pomp. And she ends it with, "We are more alike than we are unalike."​

And I feel like there's such a good message in there. And that was definitely a political statement that Apple was putting out there, but they did it in a way that is not offending people. And so I think there are examples that you can pull already from social media that could teach your kids how to appropriately post something online.
