On Growing Up…

growing up

Critics who treat adult as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.

    The book he is reading is Captain Underpants, which I bought for my son when he was little to help him read. He did a book report on it and when we visited the teacher, I told her that I was concerned that she might have a problem with the book he was reading since it included some poopy humor, but she had no problem because he enjoyed reading which what matters. They are funny and a little bit mature, but my son laughed when he read those books. I also read the books and thought they were pretty funny.
