Sam Adams Alliance - Engaging Democracy: How to Raise an American featuring Myrna Blyth

With summer vacation now in full-swing (for kids, at least) and family vacations and road trips coming up, this week's Engaging Democracy podcast discusses the importance of sharing American values and American history with children, teenagers, and even young adults.

Eric O'Keefe shares some anecdotes on why it's critical that American youth understand our country's founding principles. Then, magazine publisher and bestselling author Myrna Blyth joins us to discuss her book, "How to Raise an American." Myrna shares some ideas on things parents can do to teach their children about our country, discuses the importance of knowing your family's American story, and gives her thoughts on how youth and young adults today understand American history.
