Today while conducting some routine personal business I began to speak with a 31 yr old professional, who was very articulate and in a responsible position. The topic of this election came up (because I was wearing my 'vote for Al' button) which then had this person quietly reflect for a few seconds. It was disclosed that not much was understood about any of the candidates, and in fact, she had never voted in her life. After a few more seconds, she observed that her parents had never engaged the kids or family in the voting process and had never discussed politics in the home. This person demonstrated an almost embarrassed demeanour, and admitted that peers had chastised her for not fulfilling the 'democratic responsibility'.

We briefly reflected on how this would come to be. We agreed that parents possess a huge influence in all manner of activities and interests that children adopt due to familiarity and comfort. No different for sports, camping, arts, gardening or political engagement.

Which seemed to cry for an observation.

Every four years we have the opportunity to guide our own destiny. It is a serious responsibility. We should prepare, investigate and evaluate. We all have the ability to select individuals who will govern our city for the next term.

If you have not spoken to your kids about this, now is as good a time as any. Discuss the regional and local issues. 

Thoughtfully consider the candidates. Make a list. And then, on election day, take your kids with you to the polling stations so they can see what goes on.

With planting a tree, the best time to do so was 20 years ago. The next best time is right now. Same goes for voting and introducing your children to the concept. 

They will be more engaged adults for your efforts.

This topic is very relevant. I really agree that we should teach kids and teenagers how to choose well and become wise and knowledgeable in order to make good decisions in their life. Voting is very hard, I wish everyone will always make the right decision for it is a crucial thing for everyone. Voting creates a big impact, it leads to a result that must always be right and for the benefit of everyone.

Children have their rights too and they need to know that. We are born in this world to express our freedom. Voting is a form of expressing our voices to the world and it is a right to fight for. There is a space for improvement but also there is a space for doing the appropriate thing in this world. I will continue to express my voice no matter what. There is a place and time for everything and that is the right thing to do. WE should not be afraid to do it for it is our right and duty.
