Use this election as a teaching moment for children
I wanted to share some wisdom from my 17-year-old son, who has followed this election process along with me for the past year and half. Since he will have the privilege to vote in the next election, he learned a lot this cycle. His comment to me this morning was that this win has restored his hope that the political elite cannot always keep winning and controlling. He sees that the people can win. I think this is a profound statement from a smart and aware young man. I also used this as a teaching moment to tell him since he is the future of this great country of ours, that he can always get involved and speak up and enter the race as well. I explained that it starts at the grassroots level in our local community.
I think all parents, instead of being bitter today, should use this a a teaching moment for our young men and women, who are the future of our country. Democracy works.
