|Summary:||Don't the rules have to change so we can grow up?|
That's the big question, not just in Sophie's mind, but in the minds of all the Corn Flakes and Lucky Charms. Why are parents so strict anyway? Why can't they ever do anything? The kids are changing, they're growing up. So shouldn't the rules change too? It seems like every time they turn around a parent is saying they can't do something. And when Sophie's dad and all the other parents complain about the violence of the kids' latest film, they are not happy with the parents!
|Extra Notes:||It's time for all of the group to learn a thing or two about growing up. When Sophie and others begin complaining about all the restrictions in their life it just results in hurt feelings and tighter restrictions. When they show the parents they can be trusted and are responsible, it leads to looser restrictions and their parents' being proud of them. |
This book also addresses the issue of abuse. One of the characters has a dad who is physically abusing them - the character has bruises all over their arms and such.
