  • Nearly all literature in education has suffered from criticism, some even going as far as to demanding a book be banned. Banning a book doesn’t just affect the school your child is going to, but all schools in the parish and every student in them. People believe that their children should not be exposed to the words and racism in books like TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD. Some people even ban books like HARRY POTTER for reason’s unknown to me. Doing this to children only prolongs the inevitable: the realization that the world is a cruel place. Exposing your children to this early on can help them make better decisions and be more prepared for anything they might see in life. Novels are usually banned because they make readers discomfort when talking about topics like brutality or rape. They make you stop and say “why would he do that?” Books like those make children, teens, or even adults build character and develop morals that will guide them through life. Literature allows children to understand their own lives through the minds of others. Literature can affect the reader’s choices, and greatly influence the person they become: for better or for worse.

  • I believe that book censorship is not a valid way of stopping children from reading invalid or out of age books. I believe this because if a parent takes a book of the shelves for the sake of their child then the book would be off the shelves for all children. I also believe that if a parent takes a book off the shelves then that could mean that parent is the only one who realizes it is an unfit book for kids. This could also mean that parent is overreacting and is ruining other kids ability to read that book. Overall, I believe that if a parent does not want their child to read a book, instead of taking it off of the shelves, that parent should try to find another way to stop their child from reading that book.
