My eldest came in and said, “Did you know parents are raising their kids to be just like them? Democrats raise Democrats. Republicans raise Republicans. I don’t get it. Then their views, they’re… They don’t think about what they believe.”
“Most people don’t think,” I told him. I hate to say it, but I know that it must be true, otherwise why would we have the political representation we have? “So what did we do wrong? I certainly am not raising yall to be just like me.”
“That’s it, Mom. That’s what you did wrong. You taught us to think.”
And there you have it!!!
Congratulations on raising sons that can think!
p.s. Paul got a 7 on the SAT written. Is that good?
