My teens and I are going to be researching political canidates this summer. There are a TON of them. This will be the first time 2 of my kids will be able to vote and they want to make informed choices on who they vote to run the country.
So we are at a stand still. We really don't have any idea what to look at with the canidates. By the way, I will not be revealing the canidate's political parties until after they have decided which canidate best suits them. I am trying to teach them to go by who they feel will be the best rather than a political party.
So far the teens want to research their views on:
I thought religion was an odd one for them to think about, but they had some good reasons. They wanted to know what religion they were and then see if their political views matched up with what their religious views were. They actually came up with the fact that if they blow off their religious views in favor of political views then why wouldn't they blow off what the people wanted! Smart kids. Simpilistic and smart!
So what I'm wanting from you ladies, is what is important to you when it comes to voting for the next president?
