Why does it seem to be a part of growing up that leads people to shed their love of "childish" things? Media such as animation and puppetry do not seem to be valid means of entertainment anymore to the average adult. What happens during the development of people to cause this travesty? It is an issue that has plagued me since I entered middle school, the idea that everything I have ever loved is now something to be cast away because it is no longer right for someone my age to be consuming. The idea that playing Pokemon or watching a Disney movie is no longer socially correct and will only insight ridicule by peers. Can someone please help me find some answers?
