No, parents need to decide what their individual child can and cannot read.

My wife and I raised our kids to have good judgement and morals and neither has read anything that I would consider offensive.

It really is not all that hard and much better than permitting the nanny state dictate what our kids can check out of a public library.

Definitely.

“My wife and I raised our kids to have good judgement and moral”

We all should do that, its our job as a parent.

“It really is not all that hard and much better than permitting the nanny state dictate what our kids can check out of a public library.”

So you review every book your kid chooses before they check it out or read it in the library? Are you sure? I know as a kid I liked to push the boundaries. Thats kinda what kids do.

Where is the line? Should ANY kind of material be available to any age kid?

The problem I see is that you are a responsible parent but many are not and think that if a book is available in a libary or at school then it will be OK for their child whatever age.

I can understand the concept where certain people fear not their own children being exposed to the material but those who do not have parents who understand what is out there and maybe cause distress or put ideas into their children’s minds that are not desireable. Too many people trust that if it in a school or a library it is OK. Also there are parents are so liberal minded anything goes and freedom of expression is everything whether it is good or bad. Who is going to protect these children.
