Yeah, even what we forbid our children to say or do is going to fire up their curiosity. What’s the smallest form of censorship? Don’t say a bad word in class, for example. That’s gonna make kids even more creative because it’s funny. I think the world needs more appreciation for understanding “the socially unacceptable”. I’d surely rather read things like this poem than the need for marching soldiers.
‘Anything Can Happen’
Shel Silverstein
Listen to the Mustn’ts,child,
Listen to the Don’ts
Listen to the Shouldn’ts
The Impossibles, the Won’ts
Listen to the Never Haves,
Then listen close to me —
Anything can happen, child,
Anything can be.
