What Kids Would Ask the 2012 Presidential Candidates

Wednesday, October 3rd, 2012

To prepare for the first presidential debate at the University of Denver today, the  Children’s Hospital Colorado (where Parents advisor and Goodyblog columnist Dr. Harley Rotbart works) recently put together this funny and thoughtful short video.

Colorado kids of different ages and backgrounds were asked to share the questions they felt presidential candidates Barack Obama and Mitt Romney should answer during their debates.  These cute and clever kids also share their favorite hobbies and what they want to be when they grow up. Some of the silly and serious questions these kids want to ask include:

  • Do you like dinosaurs?
  • How will you decrease childhood obesity?
  • Will you make the school year shorter?
  • How can you help me pay for college?
  • What are you doing to improve children’s health care?
