Teachable moments, take em' when you get 'em!

My kids came home from school on Tuesday and told me they had seen the President's address. My fifth grader said it was inspiring, nice vocabulary word, and my second grader said everyone's eyes were wide open watching. Considering the historical times in which we are living and it was an address by our country's president to our children, I was pleased it was show in their school.

With all the fur flying lately, I recognized it took a degree of "intestinal fortitude", as my mother would say, to make this available. I told the kids I was calling their principal. At first they were shocked and horrified, anguished cries of, Nooooooo, don't Mommy. I proceeded, undaunted by their wails of protest. Their principal got on the line and I proceeded to thank her for her decision, in the interest of patriotism and education. No matter what anyone's political persuasion, it is more important to share information and recognize another's courage than to point out their failings. This teachable moment stuck and the kids got it!
