Tomorrow is Election Day – and that might not seem like a particularly family-oriented event … but … it could be!
Because children learn by participation.
So if we start when children are young – by talking about election day coming up – by sharing your voting experience with them by taking them to the polls with you – by watching you vote – by giving them one of the “I voted today” stickers to wear – by discussing issues with older children -I believe our children will grow to value and appreciate the significance – and the responsibility – of casting a personal vote for the candidates of their choice.
And … you know how children love to make choices.
You might even have some fun with voting participation at your house – for something as yummy as dinner – or snack. What will your vote be? How about a child-friendly ballot – perhaps for grilled cheese sandwiches? pizza? spaghetti? ice cream, your family favorites?
I say Vote Yes – for family participation!
Voting tomorrow – Tuesday, November 6th .
Make it a family affair.
