Literate children, ugh!

I'm very proud of my son's reading abilities but it has taught me to have lightening fast reflexes. The Woodlands has pockets of violence, nookie and swearing. It has sentences in it like 'an arc of blood sprayed across the crowds' faces like red rain.' So when my son read it over my shoulder I learned very quickly the fastest command to save and close since the first time my attempt to cover my big imac screen with my arms really didn't work. I don't want to have another conversation about blood spray or loose teeth mixed with blood spilling over lips.

Makes me wonder, though, what will they think about The Woodlands when they are old enough to read it?
