Freshman in High School was when I stopped pledging and just sat there. Never suffered any repercussions from it. It was my call to make. Just let your kids know it's their call to make. Don't call it for them. Thumbsup

Breathing - it's more art than science.

I remember when I never stood up for the pledge. Now you have to or you get a detention.

I have to disagree. A six-year old is in no position to make that decision. As a parent, my rule of thumb with the school and teachers is that if it is adults in authority who are being unfair to the students, it is my job to run interference, adult-to-adult.

It is illegal at the state AND federal level for you to suffer any repercussions whatsoever from school staff or teachers due to your decision to abstain from the Pledge of Allegiance. If you can show a pattern of abuse, you can sue the school district into budgetary purgatory, upon which constituency hell will soon follow.
