Parents, Let Your Children Read What They Want

I can’t stand when parents decide what their children can and cannot read. It vexes me to know end. To any parents who stumble upon this foul-mouthed entry, I implore you—let your children pick out books on their own. Let them explore Hogwarts, or traverse Narnia. Let them spend a summer in Fablehaven, or fight alongside the Reckoners in Newcago.

I have a friend who worked at an Indigo/Chapters store who was unabashedly frustrated with parents who would buy books for their children with little input or care for what the child wants! As far as I can remember, my parents never stopped me from reading anything so this is such a bizarre concept to me, but definitely a thing that happens.
