The kids aren't alright. Yet we coddle the little things with safety pads on the playgrounds, volunteer P.E. sessions in school and keeping the hazardous chemicals out of reach. 'K is for Knifeball: an alphabet of terrible advice' stomps that motherly progress with one simple book. Kids deserve the truth although they most likely can't handle it: old people die, your parents will drink and Justin Bieber is gay. Those are the cold hard facts that we as a society must provide to the children. And for $9.95 with shipping and handling, it's never been easier to preach.
