Teaching Children About the Presidential Election

We are down the homestretch of the presidential election and now that my daughters are a bit older, they have more questions than ever! I love that they are taking an interest in this important event, so I have gathered some helpful resources for explaining and engaging them in this process. I love hearing their views and seeing them take their first stances on certain issues. It is the beginning of long and rewarding journey of talking about and processing the many issues that we face as a society—together as a family.

Happy voting!
