Introduce your child to ‘John Adams’
Parents and grandparents, the HBO seven-episode series “John Adams” is an outstanding story of a key founding father, with the background of the conflict with the British, the Revolution and the founding of our country.
This story is told with production values through the roof, a gift to every American in my view, and every adult should watch it. It is a gripping story of the life of one imperfect lawyer and farmer, the impact he had on our country, and how he would never have achieved much without his best friend and confidant, his wife Abigail.
I am having my 13-year-old daughter, Melanie, watch the series as a form of homework – wish me luck! To prepare for that, and to make sure she stays awake, I prepared some background information, and a series of questions for each episode.
I would recommend this series highly to every American adult, and especially teens.
