...except ye be as a little child...
I have a friend who claims to not only not have had a childhood but to not believe a childhood is necessary. I have another friend who is currently living in a prolonged state of selfish adolescence.
What is the balance? Not everything an be excused by pop psychology and blaming your inner child.
What makes childhood sweet but childishness hard to put up with?
How do we balance the innocence against the ignorance? Make room for irresponsibility in a life of responsibilities?
