Is there a difference between my opinions and the truth?!?!?? Not according to me!

I feel like kids pick up a ton just from eavesdropping on adult conversations. Once we asked DH's little cousin (from a very conservative branch of the family mind you) "hey J, do you know the difference between Democrats and Republicans?" And without missing a beat he said "of course, Republicans are good and Democrats are bad, everyone knows that!" It was pretty funny. He was like 8 or so at the time. So probably it is better to just set an example of not ranting and demonizing, pointing out things you agree and disagree with on both sides, etc than to expect or believe that you can give your child a truly unbiased description of what politics is about

I read this once in a funny book. The adult table conversation, as imagined from the kids' table (like holiday dinner style):

Mom: will you pour me some more wine? I want to act silly.
Uncle George: Politics! Politics! I'm angry!

There was some more but that part made me laugh out loud when I read it
