Children and hard words

Some sage advice from Fr. Tim Finigan at The Hermeneutics of Continuity.
It is not a good idea to shield children from difficult words. Better that they know them and are fascinated by them and then learn more about them as they grow older.
He applies it to liturgy, but I think it is a good general principle for talking and especially reading to kids.
