Children and the inauguration
The thread about the Pledge of Allegiance brought this to mind. Over the last couple of weeks I've read of and spoken to people who not only didn't want their children to watch the inauguration in school, they also complained to the schools about the broadcasts in the classroom and/or special assemblies. I don't have children, but every inauguration becomes a part of our country's history and if I did have a child old enough to understand what was going on I'd want that child to watch it, even though it would probably mean (with this particular inauguration) discussing with that child why I didn't think this person was the best choice for President.
Did you (or would you have) let your children watch the inauguration if the President-elect was not your choice of candidate? If your children watched it in school, did you mind? Why or why not?
