kids are dumb
This is pretty self-explanatory, but it is such a common theme of the staple Childhood Trauma books, that it needed a tag. Time and time again we are reminded of how utterly stupid silly children are.
As someone invested in education, I need to have a sidebar with this excellent, topic-relevant, but completely contradictory Philip Pullman quote:
“Children are not less intelligent than adults; what they are is less informed.”
All I’m saying is: Philip Pullman clearly hasn’t read the BSC.
