Booking Through Thursday
Booking Through Thursday asks this question: What do you think of censoring books BECAUSE of their intended age? Say, books too “old” for your kids to read?
Since I don't have kids, I have to do this hypothetically. I wouldn't allow my kids to read books that would be deemed too old, especially if the content in the book was something that was geared for a 16 year old and the reader was under 14 or 15. I wouldn't want my kids to be exposed to material that potentially they couldn't understand, especially if there are sexual references in the book. And especially if the book has adult issues that come up in the book. I suppose the best thing a parent could do would be to have some guidelines as to what can be and can't be read rather than a complete ban.
