I sometimes wonder if our culture's tendency to try to "kid-safe" the world comes from a misplaced resentment at having been forced to grow up ourselves. It's sort of a catch-22 ... the more insulated kids are from reality, the harsher a shock it is for them when they have to cope with it.

Heck, just look at the Buddha.
