From an Eagle Rock Mom:
I'm proud of my high-school/middle school kids. They took an avid interest in the presidential election, watching all the debates, discussing politics with their friends and even holding a small fundraiser.
Our candidate won—Go, Obama!—but we have school family friends who voted Romney (yep, even in Eagle Rock). I want my kids to be proud of their support of Obama, but I want them to understand how gloating about the win to Romney-supporting students might be hurtful and even cause more division among parties.
What would you say to your kids to help them show their political pride in a tactful way? Also what would you advise them to do and say to cultivate an understanding among their friends as to why they think they made the right choice and why their friends' family's support of Romney was also right for them?
