September‘s reading colors are my wedding colors...yellow , grey, and purple. Why you ask? Because it‘s our anniversary month! Woohoo and happy reading! #readingyellowgreyandpurple #colormeseptember

Dear Martin | Nic Stone
post image

QUESTION for parents/teachers...or really anyone who has an opinion or insight in the matter.
I picked up these two books for my almost 13 year old son (he is reading at a 12th grade level). The subject matter of Dear Martin is pretty deep but something I think his eyes should be open to BUT there is cursing and the N word in it. Would you cover the words, have a talk about the words, or wait til he is older to read it?

jpmcwisemorgan Not a parent or teacher - I feel like this is an opportunity for you to discuss this with your son. He‘s probably already heard at least the cursing. Covering up words makes it seem like there‘s something to hide and sometimes when parents make a big deal about things, whatever it is becomes a bigger deal than it really might be. 7mo
TrishB I found my daughter reading my GoT books at 13....I‘m very liberal and think the sooner they can discuss these issues the better! But I don‘t know your son and don‘t like to tell anyone how to parent. (edited) 7mo
jpmcwisemorgan And reading a book with deep or important content and having you to talk to can be really good. I think a lot of parents miss out on those opportunities because they don‘t read or pay attention to what they‘re kids are reading. 7mo
See All 17 Comments
jpmcwisemorgan But to the point made by @TrishB you know your son best and what he can handle. 7mo
bridge12 I recently had this discussion, most studies show that race discussions should probably start around 3-8 y/o. What age do black kids get these terms thrown their way, or are aware they are treated differently. So if black/brown kids are aware of this stuff at your kids age it‘s “fair” for your kid to know as well 🤷🏼‍♀️ Granted I don‘t have children and your mom instinct is much greater than mine. Either way, a good resource is westories.org 7mo
JacqMac I say talk about it. My kids were also advanced readers. I found that if the subject of a book was too heavy for them they would bail on their own anyway. I always think it‘s better to talk about it then to pretend it doesn‘t happen. Books give you a good opportunity to talk about the hard things. That being said, you know your kid and what is best for him, better than anyone. 7mo
jessinikkip I was always an advanced reader and in our house, I got to choose my own books at about his age, regardless of language but my mom and grandma always had an open mind and listening ear to talk it over. I think its good to expose children to different views and even different language as long as youre there to talk it over. But ultimately you know your kids and what they can handle. 7mo
Tamra My vote is to talk about it. With my kids who are in fact are black, we are frank and open. I would be cautious though if my kids had triggers. (edited) 7mo
CouronneDhiver Talk about it ... but you know your child best, so if it‘s better that the talk wait another year or two, that‘s fine too. I wish my parents would have been as open with me, as a child, as they are now. 7mo
everlocalwest I love, loved Dear Martin and think Nic Stone writes about race in in an amazing and nuanced way (this book handles the reality of micro aggressions so well!). That being said though, I would recommend Ghost Boys over Dear Martin for a 12yo learning about about race and police violence. I think if you are worried about language there may be other themes in here he is not ready for as well. I hope this makes sense... 7mo
sammisho Depends on the kid but I would let my daughter who is 12 read it. I feel like books like this would be a great way to open up discussions and I am a strong believer is not sugar coating things. But again, it does depend on the maturity of the kid. The N word being used in this context is not just for value, but to highlight real life, important issues. 7mo
sammisho @bridge12 great point. Black family here, so we had to have those open discussions early. 7mo
ravenlee My kid is only five, but when we encounter stuff that I consider inappropriate (I‘m looking at you, Little House books), I pause and tell her that today these kinds of attitudes are not okay, but people used to think they were. I would do something similar before handing her a book to read on her own - there are words in here that people shouldn‘t use, but sometimes they do and it‘s important to understand that. Discussion to follow. 7mo
Peddler410 Use the book to have a conversation with your son. I‘ve read Dear Martin and I work in a middle school. Let him read it or read it as mother/son read along and have conversations as you go. 7mo
HippieChickHomeschool Absolutely read it and talk about it. That‘s the beauty of reading, imo. 7mo
megnews I agree with @ravenlee & others who said use it as an opportunity to discuss. My personal stance has been (similar to @bridge12 ) if kids have gone through these experiences more privileged kids will survive reading about them. You of course have to follow your conscience but I strongly feel if a child is not ready to read certain words, they shouldn‘t read the book. I would not black out the words because that feels like censorship to me. 7mo
LibrarianRyan I would have a talk about the words. Odds are he has already heard them somewhere and I think it helps to put personal meaning behind them. 7mo

MommyOfTwo @MaleficentBookDragon sorry I got distracted when I first read this and it just dawned on me I dint answer. 7mo
MommyOfTwo Oops hit send by accident. For hot chocolate heat 1 cup of milk(don‘t boil) in a mug put 1/3 cup chocolate chips, pour milk over and stir. I prefer dark chocolate, you may want to add a little sugar depends how you like it. You can also add a peppermint candy for extra flavor. The chocolate you can also adjust, I don‘t think my cups are ever the same because I just eyeball it. @MaleficentBookDragon (edited) 7mo

I treated myself for accomplishing my goals! I‘m sad to finish off the Jackaby series. So very excited to pick up where I left off with the most amazing series ever with Tower of Dawn... annnnd as most of you know, I am a total sucker for Fairy tales so I had to get a couple new ones. The Grimm book made me drool.😍😍😍

tpixie Great covers, esp the Grimm! 8mo

108 books in 1 year! 8 books past my goal and I am so proud of myself. I‘m excited for 2019 as I will be trying something new. My children will pick a color each month, that month I can only read books of that color or with that color in the title. 🥳

Heatherfeather Wow! Good on ya! 9mo
