Why might it be a good idea to expose your child to violent protests? Special guest author Cheryl Chumley gives you something to think about on today’s License to Parent.
When we think about raising our kids, teaching them civics is not the first thing we often think about. Unless of course, we’re talking about the civics class they may or may not be taking in school. If they are teaching civics in your child’s school, the question we should be asking is “by what standard is it being taught?” Love of country, our neighbors, and posterity has always been the great motivation behind civics in America. But what happens when school systems indoctrinate our kids to have disdain for our nation, especially for certain people groups within it? As parents, how should we respond when the foundation of our constitution is being challenged, especially when options such as socialism and even communism are being portrayed as better systems?
