“parents need to decide what their individual child can and cannot read”
“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?
However, I have not read every book they brought home, but I trust both of them to make good decisions.
Moreover, they are smart enough and mature enough to read complex material that some may find objectionable.
