There are parents who are of the school that children should be exposed to the harshness and realities of life as soon and as much as possible. They portend that children who are exposed to life's realities and truths make them street savvy and tough. These parents further opine that the problem with children today is that they are sheltered from the real world and are sissified so to speak! What do you think?
I was raised as one of those 'sheltered' kids and it's no good. I would later learn how I held 'unrealistic expectations' of others which hurt my social and life skills. Luckily, my rebelliousness allowed me to learn the 'realities' of life and people though at arms with my parents and some authority figures

Did anyone read Aesop's fables as children? Did you learn any moral lessons from the fables? If you have children have they been exposed to Aesop?
