“We need every single one of you to develop your talents, skills and intellect so you can
help solve our most difficult problems. If you don’t do that – if you quit on school –
you’re not just quitting on yourself, you’re quitting on your country.”
Is this something you don’t want your children to hear? I think it is a good statement, yes parents should be making this statement as well, but what about those kids who parents are not being parents? My question is this: If your so afraid of the president is going to say to your children, then how do you respond to what they are normally watching on television or interacting with online or in video games?
