Protests and child rearing

I brought my son to work with me yesterday, not realizing that sleepy little Bellevue was about to be the site of a protest.

Little did I know that President Bush was coming to town for a fundraiser. The crowds gathered hours in advance to protest, so I decided that my son should have an impromptu civics lesson.

It prompted lots of good questions, and we had a long discussion about the political process. It was a good chance to explain the importance of different opinions, and the need for healthy debate.
