- the Constitution
- the intent and purpose of the Founding Fathers
Have you ever heard the saying, "If you study the truth long enough, you can easily see the lie"?
If you were to study just enough to grasp or refresh these two elements, you can stay on top of any political conversation (from my experience so far!). I am reluctant to turn this post into a sales pitch, yet I am feeling quite passionate for you, dear mothers. If there has ever been a time in our recent history where it is vital for you to play a part in leading your child through current events fused with correct American history, it is now.
My experience from these last few months of helping FFYB create this notebooking line for The Politically Incorrect Guide to The Founding Fathers has been one of incredible insight into my own lack of sharp debating skills, lack of current events knowledge, and my awkwardness at being left behind in interesting adult dinner conversation.
Might I suggest this Notebooking series might be a good summer course for mommies? I KNOW you don't have much time, but the design on these pages is quick, to the point, and thorough. Do just one chapter a week. Look at the notebook page and you could scan the book to make it even quicker.
If you study the basic principles then it won't matter what current event happening at the time. Reference the Constitution and the Founding Fathers and you are up to speed. It's brilliant.
You need the reference book The Politically Incorrect Guide to The Founding Fathers. I bought mine used at Amazon.
You will need these files: buy chapters as needed- Notebooking for The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Founding Fathers
I want to encourage mommies to stay in tune with our history as it is happening.
Perhaps these quick, little files will help you do just that.
