Forget Rating Comics--Get to Real Issue

Regarding the mothers and school representatives mentioned in "The Comics Crusade" (May 20), I wish to enlighten them to a more important topic than the rating of comic books. Most reacted with shock at what children were reading. My suggestion: When you first learn your child is interested in something (sports, video games or comics), show you care by taking an interest in it as well. If something concerns you (violence, sexual content), find out how he or she feels about it. Restricting access to comic books and not discussing the matter with the child will only cause them to want it more.
