Terrific Tuesday – Election History George Bush, Al Gore and the Teenie Bopper — 6 Comments

  1. The time to talk to chiildren about things depends on you and your children. When children see the news, go to school and interact with the world, they are exposed to a great number of things we may not have talked to them about yet. Each home is different, what worked for my home, was having a plan for how to address issues when they came up. That meant I talked from a prepared, planned narrative rather than making up something as I went along. But, I am a control freak.

  2. I’m not sure how much I plan to talk with my kids about politics. I guess I’ll figure that out when I have them. 🙂

  3. All over FB, Twitter and in life people were so angry about the Presidential election and Obama/Romney as men. I am glad my kids look at the people running and the results. One of our friends was a council person in Upper Darby, Pa. and is a Republican, so that is a good example that you can get along with the opposition. Perhaps if people like you and I raise our children with good ideas and good manners, elections will be better in the future.

  4. Great article and great question! I grew up not knowing much (or having a negative view) about politics. And I definitely don’t want my kids to experience the same thing. So I am committed to making sure they know enough to make an informed decision, and also to know that it’s ok to have friends with different beliefs. After all…my sister is a republican.

  5. Exactly! It makes the world a little spicier to have friends with different perspectives.

  6. Well, my 3 year old frequently chants, “Obama! Obama!”, so there’s your clue! LOL! Great post, Janeane! I am friends with all types of folks. We need to make informed political choices, and since all of our experiences are different, our perspectives may not be the same! That’s what make the world go round.

How do these ideas work in your world?
