In the past several weeks, you've no doubt seen and heard the chaos that is going on in our nation. While it's often easy to hide our feelings, fears, and even insecurities from our younger children, I believe our older children can benefit from knowing what's happening.
My husband and I often talk to our children about the government, politics, and the things the government has done, is doing, or will do, whether we agree with those decisions or not. We want them to have not only a well-rounded understanding of the events but also we want to encourage them to form their own opinions and know what they stand for and why. Then we pray together for our nation, our president, and those in authority over us.
Today, I'd like to encourage you to talk with your middle school and high school aged children about these things. Watch the news, read the paper, and discuss current events. For those of you with younger children, take the time to pray for our nation with those young ones! Encourage your older children to pray, too!
How do you include your children in politics and teach government? We would love for you to share!
Have a blessed week!
