Violence and children

Palmer just finished reading a book called Peter Nimble, which, although it has a happy ending, has a very dark and violent first few chapters. My son is really not a fan of people being mean to each other or hurting each other or being killed or even dying.

His father just ordered him the full set of Harry Potter books, which to me will be even worse than Peter Nimble because of the constant air of tension, betrayal, and intrigue at his magic school. One little bit of violence seems better than a constant sense of tension and uncertainty.

But both are part and parcel of life, I guess.
