Did your child read

the Left Behind series for kids?

I bought it for my nephew who is 10. Spent quite a bit on the series after researching. they are strict and homeschool so I thought it was a good educational gift. She told me she wasnt allowing him to read it becasue it has a small section where it implies the guys takes pills or something to "slip away" because he is left behind. anyone else have a problem with these books..they only have good reviews and she tends to be WAY over the top.

  • You're kidding? Right? *shakes head*

    My parents introduced my DD to them, and she hated them. Would rather read Harry Potter...

    See, she proves my point about people HS for religious purposes, it should be illegal.

  • Yes - my 10 year old is in the process of reading the series currently, I think he's on book #5. I am reading each one before he does (so I can fully answer any questions he may have) and I haven't seen anything in there that I would object to.

  • yeah lets not let them read the bible either.. what would we do if they seen the part when Jesus was crucified?
    Oh yeah the kid will try to crucify some one at school.
    Ugh, when will parents learn if you teach your kids they won't try to mimic what they see in movies or shows or read in books. It is called parenting you talk to them and what they and read.

  • missanc-thanks I felt bad when she said that but honestly I had only heard good things about the books. I dont think they made it very far before she took the books from him. Did you think it aluded to suicide in a bad it would give kids ideas?
