We had a talk today, my daughter and I. She is interested in politics, state and federal. During lunch we were talking about politics and she asked if someone was a Democrat or a Republican. They were a Democrat and she commented that she was relieved.
So we had the talk, the one about how there are, amazingly, good Republicans and bad Democrats out there. That we should consider the person over the party. It’s hard for a third grader to fully understand such concepts as their little brains are still very black and white. It is much easier for kids to see Dems and good and Repugs as bad. That’s okay; it was still a good message to instill. I'm glad she is taking an interest in the larger community.
