What Say You?

Theory #1: Kids grow up too fast. They're seeing things and experiencing things that ruin their innocence too early in life. Theory #2: Kids don't grow up fast enough. There are too many 22-year-olds out there who have no idea what responsibility means. Which way do you lean? 'cause I think both are right. But, it's not just the "innocence" that I'm worried about kids losing. It's the fact they love unconditionally. They forgive blindly. Their dad can be the biggest jerk in the world, and they still want to hug him. When do we lose that?
