kids finally get a book they love and these people are pissed at the material!!!
theres no pleaseing these people!!!
and that little girl on the video less than half way in she says she wants to make a horrible spell so that the revenge can start...and they blame the book?!?!?!
maybe she wants revenge because our schools have become warzzones and kids don't feel safe anymore...
and with this same sense in mind can't i blame the bible or the Passion of the Christ for making me want to crucify people???
can't i blame the Crusades for making me want to go and kill millions of people just cause of the way they think???
All i'm saying is these things have nothing to do with each other...
i agree with you eyesOnnly,allow your kids to read Harry Potter coz it will improve their vocabulary and instead of spending their time outside your house, isnt it good that your child is busy in reading a book.
I've been reading harry Potter, and so far i havent seen anything why should disallow the youngster to read it. If you think that your child believes in sorcery, dark magic, so where is parental guidance? As a parent, you are held responsible to open your kids into a wider perspective. Read Harry potter with your child and explain to him or her that the story is only a fictional one
