Guest Post on Young Adults and Literature!

For those of you who don't follow John Ottinger's Grasping For the Wind, you really should, because then you wouldn't have to read this post telling you to check out my guest post there called "Our Inner Children and Childhood Suppression:  Let Kids Be Kids."  Seriously, you should read it.

But first, here's a little taste:
It’s only as we get older that our wonder and imaginations are clamped down on by society. Schools stifle creativity by resorting to “by the numbers” teaching styles and teaching goals. Parents begin to tell us to grow up, to act our age, to stop talking to ourselves in the corner or playing house or all those silly little games we used to play.
Hooray for out of context quotes!
