Why You Shouldn’t Censor Your Teen’s Reading

Why you shouldn’t censor your teen’s reading

The above linked article goes along with my previous post about book bans and the newly proposed law that would imprison librarians for allowing children to read “inappropriate” books.

The article above talks about not censoring what your child is reading, but if the book is controversial, or if you feel your child can’t handle the topic, read along with your child and allow them to ask questions and discuss the parts of the book that are uncomfortable.

Also, it talks about the books that parents tend to find are “inappropriate.” These books are usually things that the parents don’t feel comfortable discussing at all, let alone with their child. This is understandable, but the parent/child line of communications should be open, or the child will learn to be uncomfortable about the same topics as the parent.
