Common Sense Reminds Presidential Debate Moderator and Candidates That Kids Are Watching

Today, Common Sense Kids Action asked moderator Chris Wallace of Fox News to use his role to get the dialogue in this campaign back on track by making sure that he and the candidates remember that kids are watching. Here is our letter to Mr. Wallace.

In the letter, we asked Chris Wallace to hold the candidates accountable for their language and subject matter. Parents shouldn't be worried that a presidential debate could be rated inappropriate for kids under 17.

Do you think they'll listen? What are your expectations for the next debate?

Please join us in standing up for kids during the home stretch of the campaign.

This whole subject matter is true no kids may not excitedly watch and pay attention to every detail they do watch and hear no I don't agree with racism or sexism but the two candidates must remember that this is still prime time television and should be treated as such yes I agree that trumps sexist and racist attitude is not what we need but Clinton lie's constantly my word of advise for parents who are making their kids watch this is to tell the children that the behaviour of the two adults 'i use the term loosely ' is not acceptable for any kind of situation my advice may only work on extremely small children but it is better than nothing these two a should learn respect for the American family and primetime television
