Navigating the Political Melee | Everyday Truth | Faith-full Moms | Scoop.it

Food for thought during election season. While there is absolutely nothing wrong about talking to our kids about values, etc. and how that influences our vote, I think we have to be careful about the words we choose and what they can understand. Last time around, I had to have some intense conversation with Megan (a 1st grader!) because of the hateful way something was expressed.
