I definitely do. The problem is finding someone to debate with and then keeping it from evolving into personal attacks and rhetoric spewing madness. Debating is a skill I’d like to teach Michelle. She tends to get pretty emotional about issues and has a hard time debating the opposite point of view. It’s a skill everyone should have but very few do.
Check out Sour Duck for some thoughts on debate and some terrific links.
Have you taught your kids the fine art of debate? I’d love to hear stories.
