The things we do to our children. The lies we tell. We furnish them with dragons, tooth fairies and Santa Claus. We foist religion on them.
Then we ridicule them for believing things or enjoy ripping their world to bits. We take away the tooth fairy, Santa Claus and dragons and ridicule them for daydreaming.
A shame we didn’t take away the religion too!
Perhaps we should let that childhood imagination blossom?
Pete summed it up in his cartoons from 1971.
