We talk about it ALL in my family openly.
Our son gets to hear one of us argue for 'there was no man on the moon' and the other arguing that "you're smart but I don't know HOW you buy into
We watch the news, Fox, Daily show, CNBC, Colbert, Russia Today, Al Jeezera, MSNBC - no one particular thing a day, but usually at least a couple of
shows a day - often leave the tv on live congressional coverage in the background....
Our son is 17. He doesn't believe a lot of 'conspiracy crap' but he does know that some conspiracies are proven true in time. I'd say he's just got
an open mind.
He's never been one to believe anything blindly though - I mean, from the age of 6 he'd question any authority that told him he had to do something.
He was the master of WHY WHY WHY. I suppose some people think I should have beat him for it. I didn't. I did play the "Because I said so card" a
good bit. I always said I wouldn't, but the mother's curse hit me. "I hope one day you have kids just like you!!!"
I don't think he has the genes for blind acceptance of authority or 'truth.' I don't think any of us do. He's got a high IQ. Would I want to disarm
him of that?
What is this word "Paranoid???" No one would want to make their kids that, would they? I know the definition, that's not what I mean, I mean....
How is that being used TODAY?
In any case, I firmly believe that loving parents are the ones that best know their kids and what they can handle.
