dilemma--AM I WRONG?
My daughter is a precocious reader and at 8 years old she has read (and re-reads) the first 6 HP books. However,
when I read Book 7's scene in the Malfoy's house in which the Muggle Studies teacher was suspended above the dining room table and then killed and fed to the snake, I just thought that was way too much for an 8 year old, I don't care how blinking smart she is! I think torture is a very deeply evil thing, I don't want her to "get used" to it in any way!
She was livid with rage when I took the book away. She screamed at me that she would never forgive me.
Should I relent? Maybe I could read parts of it to her myself, but ordinarily she doesn't have much patience with being read to. She is a phenomenal reader herself.
