Imagine booing a 9y/o for voicing her opinion... an opinion she was asked to state. Idiots. :steamed:

Why is a 9 year old child involved in politics at all? A 9 year old child has no relevant opinion.

In 9 years, she will. Is it too early for kids to learn about politics, and what really goes on in the running of a nation? I encourage my 12 y/o to look into candidates for himself. I don't think that it's too early, per se. Her learning now, and not grasping all of it is better than waiting until she turns 18 and guessing who is the better choice.

Yeah, it's better for them to wait and learn about politics from on MTV or in public schools.

A 9 year old with good parents that are preparing her to go out into the world on her own in just 9 short years would not wait until the last minute to inform her. My kids have been asking questions about world events pretty much since they were
Old enough to know there was a world. Might have had something to do with daddy running off to participate in them since they were very young. My oldest was 10 months old when I left for Desert Storm. You have to explain those things to kids early on so they know why you had to be gone.

My 11year old son knows more about the political process and policies of both candidates than any of those ignorant lefties booing. Hell, he probably know more than the candidates themselves:supergrin:
At least he does not come out with the excuse to go to their websites to see the details.:rofl:

Oh, I agree. By all means educate them. They're children. Let them soak up the information. But what business do they have offering their opinion up to people? A 9 year old's mind isn't physically developed to the point of being able to comprehend and discuss such issues.

Not that I agree with booing at a child. But I'd like to come upside the parents' heads for being idiots just as much as the boo'ers.

:faint:
At what age should a child have a "relevant opinion" when politicians are busy spending the money the child will have to pay back when they reach adulthood?

She should be free to voice her opinion, especially when asked, since it's all she can do since she cannot vote her views yet.

I say 16 is a good number. YMMV. But I'm pretty sure any sane human being would rattle off a number well above 9.


She should be free to voice her opinion, especially when asked, since it's all she can do since she cannot vote her views yet.

Okay, then if the child gets to give an opinion like anyone else, they get to be boo'd for sounding like an idiot like anyone else. And a 9 year old would, of course, perpetually sound like an idiot in political conversations because they are a 9 year old child.



You know what you say to a 9 year old when they try to speak to adults in an adult conversation?

"Quiet. Grown ups are talking."

Apparently that should be said to some people on this site, too.


A 9 year old child's brain is physically not developed enough to reason on the level required for such conversations. Its not physically possible, barring some kind of freak of nature child genius. I was under the impression that this kind of information was common knowledge.

When my children speak, I take their words and thoughts seriously. I care.

Wasn't the kid asked her opinion? It's not as if the 9 year old kid is publishing her own political blog or something. If she had said "scooby Soo" people would have "awwwwed", but because they don't like romney they boo a kid. This isn't about whether a kid is capable of having a political opinion, its about how ****ty it was to boo her.

So, you're going to tell me that you've never met a 9 year old, bright enough (in fact, brighter that many adults, like the ones that frequently get interviewed) to understand the difference in say, conservative versus liberal viewpoints?

You're making me feel much better how smart my kids are. :supergrin:

No, for the same reason there aren't many 9 year old authors writing timeless classics on love, war, good and evil and the nature of man and the universe. Politics deal with some of these themes, themes that a child (and apparently some adults) do not have the life experience or insight required to comprehend them on any meaningful level.

Youwere probably OK with the teacher who taught the kids the "Obama song" though, right?

Wow. Just wow. Every once in a while, you will be taught a moment of wisdom by a child, if you are able to listen.

You've probably missed a lot, and never knew it. I'm sad for you. Part of parenting is leading. In order to lead effectively, your subordinates have to either fear or respect you. If you beat them, they will fear you. They will also stab you in the back when given a chance. If you show you care for them as people, and respect them, they will respect you back and follow you through difficult situations.

I always ask nice......... the first time.

Having a fully developed brain is not a prerequisite to having an opinion. If you doubt that, just speak to a Democrat.

Personally, I would not put my 9 y.o. child in the position that ones parents did.

Children should be allowed to lead the Pledge of Allegience and what not but if you put them out there supporting a candidate don't be suprised if something like this happens.

As parents we all make choices and even if we disagree with each others choices for our children, most of us would not 'pile on' when a 9y/o says something.

Liberals like those that child was subjected to are really often not nice people. I know some... see lots of others in motion, and ....:whistling:

Take a look at the thread title,

"Rabid Obama supporters boo 9y/o girl..NBC"


Does that say "9 year old talking Politics"? No

the first 4 words set the topic of this thread, but YOU try to twist it around.

"Inject Obama into every thread"???? His name is the second word in the thread title.

First you blame the victim, and then as an Obama supporter you try and PLAY the victim. You completely ignore the thread title to try and twist the topic.
