Teaching the Declaration of Independence and The Constitution should be mandatory to graduate from high school.
My sons at first hated it when I would sit them down at night and go over it with them.
At times I thought it was a waste of time.
When they got into high school and some of the indoctrination started. They would come home and tell me how wrong their teacher was and that they were correcting them.
This of course started another conversation on picking you battles and passing classes without drinking the kool aid.
So I learned that even if they don't look like they are absorbing the lessons I was trying to teach, it still registered with them.
Now my love for American History and Maritime History has been passed on. They come over and borrow my books to read.
Most kids secretly want to learn. Give them an alternative to what they are learning in school
