Moms Talk: Are 2012 Political Conventions for Kids?

Will your children be watching the 2012 Republican National Convention and the 2012 Democratic National Convention?

This week's question for St. Louis parents focuses on the educational value of the 2012 Republican and Democratic conventions in light of the U.S. presidential race between President Barack Obama and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.

Suppose you have a high-school student. He is mildly interested in his social studies and political science classes.

So onto this week's question: Would it be worthwhile for him to spend some time watching the two national political conventions? If yes, how will you structure these viewing experiences to make them as educational as possible?
