by John Malam"Mom," my daughter said this afternoon, "I want you to read this pirate book you got for me. I don't think it's appropriate for children my age."
Reading the book, I felt irritated that it was written in the second person, but what my daughter thought was "inappropriate" were the detailed descriptions and cartoon-like drawings of methods of torture.
I checked out this book for her because it was in the recommended reading section of her history curriculum. I used to pre-read everything, but now that she's almost nine and because I'm just tired, I've been handing her things with little to no previewing.
And I must say, my technique is working swimmingly. There's no need to censor her reading because she's doing a fine job censoring it for herself. I just hope she has better luck than I'm having shaking the image of the cat-o'-nine-tails with bloody fish hooks tied to the tails.
