Stevie and a few of her teenage friends have been planning a Blog Talk Radio show for many months. Stevie and I have a show called Blogs and Social Networks but she and her friends wanted to do another Blog Talk Radio Show on all topics concerning Teen issues today. It is quite the hit, this show and they came up with a topic for a specific show on the Presidential Election 2008 for the United States.

With so much controversy surrounding the United States Elections, so much media opinion, celebrity endorsement, commercials informing viewers about other commercial lies, story contradictions, and misuse of authority that adults have a difficult time sorting through the rubbish to find the facts. Even then, the facts generally are just words in the end. Sometimes empty promises, sometimes intentions that later never come to fruition.

Choosing your candidate for President of the United States or your governing officials in general is an important, challenging, and research intensive job in the end. There are some adults that don’t take their votes seriously at all, some that use anger in their influence to get others to see their points, others are quite intense in their decisions, some vote like their friends or parents do, while some do not vote at all. How are the new voters of the United States then going to decipher how to vote themselves.

Yes, most high schools teach the subject of Civics and American History, but then are we leaving the “swayed opinion” of the particular teachers of these subjects to influence the youth of today? If not these opinions, then are the new eighteen year old voters going to sift through the informative commercials for the truth? Or, will they not vote at all out of frustration or just vote like their parents and friends?

Parents speaking to their children about voting as early as they would about sex, drugs, finance and of other life importances is one answer to this. Teaching children to think for themselves, to figure out who to listen to and believe, and that indeed people are sometimes truth tellers and other times speak words only to influence others, true or not, will be more beneficial for a life time than any other teachings you could impart on your children.

Speak to your youth before they turn 18, don’t wait until they come of age to vote. In order to make an informed decision, all voters need first to decide which issues are important to them before deciding which candidate should acquire their vote.

The hesitation and delay on this show for Teen Girls Radio has been a mix of all of this put together and more. Teen Girls Radio has postponed the show on the Presidential Election 2008 for a few weeks now. Their initial thoughts on the show was that they were steadfast in their decisions on who they each wanted to be new President of the United States. They realized early in the research procedure that this was not going to be as easy a show as they had originally believed. Few 18 year olds are confident in the area of politics and political discussion and were stepping a bit out of their realm. This is a brilliant example of learning as you go, incredible life lessons, taking on any task with youthful enthusiasm and youthful spirit that being 18 embodies in the World.  Autumn was sure she did not even wish to vote at first but after doing some research decided that her vote does count and has not definitively chosen a candidiate. Megan and Stevie are still set in their original choice of John McCain.

Being a young adult, the World opening up even further to you with new decisions and choices, new responsibilities, realizations and expectations, and the excitements and disappointments in life all coming at you at top speed can be overwhelming. Embrace the changes and live in the moments of brilliance learning along the way. Don’t ever lose yourself in the mix and create your environments of happiness and well being.
