How Young Is Too Young?
Hazel has been begging to read Twilight. I just got it back from my neighbor, (the same neighbor that told her kids that coke/diet coke will kill you) she didn't finish it BTW (I don't know why. Maybe someone less desensitized can shed some light). She did let her twelve year old daughter read it though, so maybe it had more to do with motivation, than condemnation. I want to encourage Hazel's love for reading, but do you think the subject matter is too mature? I am quasi-liberal when it comes to letting my kids do stuff like this. I let them watch pg-13 movies (but I usually have to fast forward the boring parts), I let her read "The Pretties" because I knew it would be too boring for her to finish. So if anyone has an opinion...go? (I added that question mark for effect. I think it worked.)
