Whether your political views align with the Republicans or the Democrats, take some time to watch the Republican speeches this week–and the Democratic speeches next week–with your kids. Show your kids and teens that you value their concerns about the state of our nation and the upcoming elections. Let them know you are eager to hear their opinions. Challenge them to support their opinions with facts and reasons.
