I remember the carefree days when I was a kid...but only vaguely.
I didn't have to worry about politics, war, or really anything on the news other than those segments that featured cute newborn pandas. Life was good.
Whether or not you allow your kids to be more involved with current events, sometimes it’s hard to shield them from everything. And since children are basically like adorable sponges when it comes to absorbing information, you’re fighting an uphill battle when it comes to them remembering something they overheard.
When this dad asked his kids some questions about a certain Presidential candidate, their responses were kind of hilarious.video-player-present
I do remember thinking everyone older than me at that age was 200, too.
Do you let your kids watch the news if they express an interest in it or do you try to shield them until they're older?
