someone on my feed put this as their status:



someone on my daughters fathers side got her the book "Twilight" for Christmas... like its great to encourage reading and all but i think sense my daughter is only 10 its like a bit much... opinions?.. OBVIOUSLY PEOPLE HATE THE STORY.. I KNOW THIS.. IF YOU POST THAT WELL THEN DUH ON YOU FOR BEING A MORON.. i am looking for opinions on giving the book to a 10 year old... The subject material... the vocabulary.. what age do you think its aimed at? i always assumed like 13-50 LOL




so what do you think? i personal have never read them on principle but i'm curious now as to what you mom's would say.

If her daughter can read it, go for it. It's not 50 shades of vampire gray. If she'd let her daughter watch the movies, might as well let her daughter read the book.



Hope the gifter doesn't have a facebook.

idk about that. i didn't read all 37 comments but one i read said that a 10 yr old has no concept of love and that by reading it she gets a misinterpretation of love and wants what bella has. idk, just seems a bit over thought in my opinion. but my daughter is only 7 months old. no telling how i'll feel when she's 10

The misuse of "sense" is bothering me. Lol



My stepson is 9 and if the books are similar to the movies I wouldn't let him read it.

yeah, i got hung up on that too. well, as i said, i haven't read them, but the movies don't look like anything crossing the line to me, but i've only seen them each once.

I wouldn't let my 11 year old read it. It give a twisted sense of love and dependence, and is just not healthy in young girls. There's a reason there are so many pictures and stuff floating around the internet that are completely downing this story. "Oh, the love of my life left me and I went semi-catatonic and then decided to try destructive behaviors just so I could hear his voice again"...Nonsense.

ah, this is true. only, i'd make sure my daughter was smarter than to do that bullshit. explaining that that's not how life is. she'll know that movies aren't real.

I guess that commenter doesn't let their child watch disney movies or believe in santa either.

funny thing is, that particular commenter looked to be about 17, and highly doubt she has a child.

While I have watched the movies, I agree. It gives the wrong impression of love. I wouldn't let my children watch it/read it.

I've read the books.with my 10 yr old before she was 10 and we watched all the movies together as well.



My cousin was 10 when in 2008 they became popular and she read them as well. I don't see the issue with it at all. But its just my opinion lol
