Children are being ignored in the 2012 presidential debates, according to a national report released late last week.
The Iowa-based Child and Family Policy Center found that the candidates and media discussed children's issues less than 2 percent of the time over 20 debates just 17 debate questions of more than 1,000.
"They're not talking about children," said Roy Miller, head of the Florida Childrens Campaign, of the candidates. "And that includes their own children. I mean, we gave them credit if they even mentioned they had kids of their own."
