Question by Curious: What would you say if your ex’s girlfriend gave your 12 year old an inappropriate book?
My ex’s girlfriend gave my son a novel to read with graphic depictions of hetero and homo sex, prostitution and gratuitous violence sprinkled throughout the text. I was shocked, to put it mildly. Parts of the novel were good and geared for a teen reader but the rest was garbage meant for adult minds only in my opinion. Am I overreacting?
Answer by Sam
I don’t think you’re overreacting. As a parent, you have the right to say what you think is appropriate it and what is not. I wouldn’t be happy if ANYONE gave my kid a book like that. Yes, the probably know about sex at that age, but they don’t need to be reading books like that.
