Talking to Kids About the Election
Do you take your child to vote with you? Do you discuss the issues?
Election Day is Tuesday and America will choose which man will run the country for the next four years.
Our kids can’t vote in the election until they are 18, but my earliest memory of the election process is voting for president in a Weekly Reader poll. (I won’t date myself and tell you the candidates.)
Children learn about current events, such as politics at school, from TV and from the environment created by parents. So, how do you deal with the elections and your kids?
I remember my mom taking me to vote with her when I was a child. Do you feel it’s important to take your child with you for the experience?
Do you talk about the issues in front of your children or with your children?
