Just Thinking

1948-50s 281

We sometimes think that kids don’t notice what is going on around them, and that they are only wrapped up in their child worlds. We are wrong. All this vicious rhetoric swirling on television, on the radio, on the internet and in “grown-up” conversations has a damaging effect on children. When I was little I was taught,”if you can’t say something nice about a person, don’t say anything.” Arguing over ideas is a healthy part of a democracy.When we demonize one another we poison our childrens’ world. It isn’t healthy for grown-ups either!
