“All children have to be deceived if they are to grow up without trauma” -Kazuo Ishiguro, Never Let Me Go
Do you agree with Ishiguro? Which is more traumatic, being deceived as a child and learning about it later? Or not being deceived, and dealing with some harsh realities about the world at a very young age?
With this in mind, should we make writers edit their topics and scenes to protect kids from trauma?
