Talking To Your Kids About Politics

LAST NIGHT AT DINNER:

“Dad, are people that don’t vote for Obama bad people?”

“Well, no. People believe that government should work in a different way; some believe that the Federal government should do less, and that states’ government should do more. Others think that the Federal government should have more responsibility. You can make a pretty good argument either way, and regardless what you believe, it’s important to not just be able to back up your arguments with logic and facts; you should also be open-minded enough to listen to a logical, fact-based argument. Our government works best when the people in charge understand this, and work together to make things happen, even if they don’t necessarily agree completely with the other person. Ultimately, what’s most important isn’t whether you’re a Democrat or a Republican; it’s whether you believe that everyone should be treated equally and fairly, with respect and dignity - regardless of their race or religion, who they love, or how much money they make.”

FIVE MINUTES LATER:

“Dad, is Honey Boo Boo Child’s mom a bad person?”

“Yes. She is a horrible awful garbage-person.”
