Great Mate Debate: Political Parenting


Dean and Angela came on the air live with us today for Great Mate Debate.  They are married and are raising their young son.  With the upcoming presidential election coming, political views are being discussed and taught to their son.  Problem is, they are on opposite sides in their political beliefs. Angela works while Dean stays at home and she feels that since he gets to spend more time with their child that he is getting to put more of his beliefs on him. They both want to instill good values in their child but can’t agree on which route to go.

Slacker and Steve started this out by trying not to turn it in to a political debate, but somehow Dean and Angela openly stated their sides.  Then there were some low blows.  It’s probably just best to stay neutral.

Whose side are you on?

My parents agree on the same political views as each other, so I had that on my side.  However, my views on politics and many other things are opposite of theirs.  They raised me to look at both sides, without judgment and make my own decisions.  So far it has worked.  I think they should both explain their beliefs and tell him that as he grows up, it is his choice on which way to think.
