  1. I see you too are outraged by the political climate. It’s sickening. I only hope our dinnertime discussions help galvanized our next generation into action for a better future–both in school and out. I know I’m heading to Reno to “walk” for change and try and swing that state blue.

  2. Great article! Democracy is in peril because we refuse to elect leaders who have the courage to tell us the truth.

  3. What ever happened to doing the right thing, because it was the right thing to do? With the new rewards-based disciplinary approach in our schools I found my kids started making good choices because they thought there was a reward in it. Or- because they were afraid to get caught. I finally banned all “sticker charts” and rewards for being decent people in our house. We got back to the basics of listening to your conscience and feeling good about having done the right thing. The best reward for doing the right thing is the feeling that comes with it. Check out this book to help foster your child’s sense of conscience: http://www.talkingtreebooks.com/be_proud_book_kids_honesty.html
