It’s not easy to admit that you’ve been wrong; especially when you’ve spent years passionately promoting a position that after further consideration turns out to be detrimental to your children. Over the entirety of our kids’ lives, my wife and I have plied them with countless books, encouraging them to read. To make matters worse, the walls of their bedrooms are covered with bookshelves that are filled with books. The librarians at many of the library branches in our county know our children on sight. Our poor kids have been unable to escape books. Sadly, though, it turns out that we’ve done our children a disservice. But, no more. For their own good, our children will no longer to be allowed to read books.
