1} Let them see you VOTE! Take your kids with you – vote early – stand in line – take them behind the curtain. This simple act will leave a lasting impact on their hearts.
2} Register your teens as a RITES of PASSAGE – build-up anticipation for this coming of age event.
3} Stock your home library with books rich in patriotic content both from the US and abroad.
4} Quote often – those who’ve gone before us and paved the way to freedom.
5} Remember our heroes both past and present.
6} Inspire nobility in everyday life – ignite their God-given desire for greatness and direct this energy in meekness and humility.
7} Cultivate an appreciation for American history – read stories of the great Americans who have developed our land and formed society for the good. In addition to books, I suggest Liberty Kids for grade-school aged kids. (we watch them for free online)
8} Reserve patriotic holidays and celebrate big!
9} Sing along with patriots from our past – I suggest Wee Sing America for little ones.
