Why did I let my kids watch this? I wanted to show them what some kids go through. I explained that if kids are bad in school, that they may not have parents that care like we care for our children. I went on to say that kids should always be given a second chance because they grow up, change, and as outsiders we just don't know what they've been through at home.
Isaak has a kid in his class that was a foster child, and now she's been adopted into a loving family. That means she had a rough life before. The foster care system tries to reconnect the biological family back with the children if possible. There's a kid going into first grade who's Mom was killed over the summer. This stuff is real, it strongly impacts children, and the whole classroom.
I told them if the video was too much for them, to let me know, and that I'd turn it off.
The only question I got was from Isaak, "Mom are you crying?" I said, "Yes this is sad!"
Would you let your kids watch this? Why? Why not?
