When I was a teenager, I went on a fun trip with the youth group at my church. The youth leader took me and my friends to our state capitol building. I became awed by the legislative process after touring the facility where important laws were passed. On our trip, we even had the opportunity to meet and talk with one of our state lawmakers. This individual helped us understand how state congressional and senate leaders worked together to get things accomplished at our state’s capitol building. On this blog, I hope you will discover the importance of teaching your kids how local, state, and federal governments operate.
