Latino Children Help Determine Parents' Vote

La Opinion, Posted: Nov 04, 2008

LOS ANGELES Seventy-five percent of children between the ages of 6 and 17 are very interested in the presidential race and in some cases, especially in the Latino community, help determine their parents' votes, reports La Opinion.

The news report reflects a study conducted by KidsHealth, the most visited online organization dedicated to the overall well-being of children. D'Arcy Lyness, psychologist and KidsHealth executive director, asserted that political parties should take the view of children into greater account.

She said that while children do not vote, their views are valuable to their parents and,the news report explains, childrens views are now politically important because this year there was a record high of Latino naturalized U.S. citizens. Many of them are less familiar with the political system and with English language than their American-educated children, therefore their children provide them with political information that can help determine their votes.
