Guest blogger Dawn: Today in my kindergartener's class, a child began passing out political bumper stickers ... because her daddy told her to!
I volunteer in my child's classroom one day a week. Today, I saw a little girl putting bumper stickers in every kid's cubby. The teacher approached her and asked her what she was doing. She said she was passing out bumper stickers to all her friends in kindergarten because her daddy told her to.
The bumper stickers said "Yes on 8" which is a hot button issue in California right now. Yes on 8 means you don't want gay marriage to stay legal in California. I couldn't believe my eyes! The teacher told her that she couldn't pass the bumper stickers out and put them back in her backpack.
I was outraged a parent would send a child to school with bumper stickers like this. We all have the right to believe the way we want to, but we shouldn't use our kids as our political pawns in my opinion.
