Parents at the Polls

Today on the Chicago Moms Blog and our sister sites (Silicon Valley, NYC, and DC Metro) many of us spoke about politics, what we're teaching our kids, and why we're voting for one candidate or another. It's some good stuff, so jump on over and start reading. If you want, jump right to mine and then read the rest. Or save mine for last...kinda like dessert.

One thing that I want to throw out there...Should fear play into your vote?

A lot of us progressives, liberals, etc. hated, hated that Rudy Guliani was running on the fear of 9/11. If someone asked him what his worst date was he'd pull a "Miss Congeniality" and answer September 11th. So why are so many people allowing "everyone else's" fear of Hillary or Barack to decide their vote? Not just in our collaborative posts, but in many places in the blogoshere and in my own conversations with friends.

HRC will polarize the right and we'll lose - FEAR
Racists won't vote for Obama - FEAR (I don't see a KKK member voting for Hill either.)

Vote your choice, but please, don't base it on fear.

Frederick, A Virtual Puppet Performance - Read by Michael Shannon

WOW...this is my first post during the Coronavirus pandemic! I hope you and your loved ones are healthy and safe. Thanks to the Chicago Children’s Theatre, the city’s largest professional theater devoted exclusively to children and families, for launching a new YouTube channel, CCTv: Virtual Theatre and Learning from Chicago Children’s Theatre. To kick if off we are treated to Frederick. Here's hoping this helps with your little ones. Or is a comfort to everyone of all ages. Chicago Children’s Theatre’s all-new virtual puppet performance was created while all of the artists were sheltering in place, working with resources limited to what they had in their homes or on their laptops. Frederick is directed by CCT Co-Founder and Artistic Director Jacqueline Russell. Puppets and sets were designed, built and puppeteered in a home studio by Grace Needlman and Will Bishop, CCT’s Director of Production, the creative team behind CCT’s annual series of Beatrix Potter puppet show
