Tips for Parents
Focusing on Heroes
Whatever the case may be, talking with your student about her heroes can stimulate some interesting conversation. Chances are that this past year of school has helped to form some of her opinions. And talking about heroes is another way to learn more about what holds meaning to your student.
As you embark on these discussions, consider people like Frank Buckles. He passed away on Feb. 27 as the last U.S. World War I veteran. Buckles served as an Army ambulance driver in France during WWI and was then held as a prisoner of war for over three years during WWII. He also advocated for a national WWI monument in DC.
Frank Buckles is considered a hero by many. You and your student can learn more about him at www.frankbuckles.org.
