Preventing True Stories from Being Told
“A society that is so fragile that it can’t have free speech is an unstable society, that won’t last long” (Anonymous) I am reading the book “Don’t you Dare Read This Mrs. Dunphry.” This book is considered a controversial book and is censored at some elementary schools due to the theme of parental neglect, sexual harassment in a part time job, and abuse. What many people don’t realize is that things like this do happen to children as young as elementary, how will they understand it unless they have a chance to read about it? The author discovered that writing her problems down helped to relieve stress. It turns out this helped her a lot in the end. Maybe the children who read this will be helped by writing. The fact is they wouldn’t know if they weren’t allowed to read it. How would that one child realize that it’s not okay for their parents to just leave, expecting them to take care of themselves? Because this is a non-fiction book it has value, lessons, and knowledge. I also believe that if children see that the author managed to stay strong and worked her and her brother through their rough times, then others can too. This shows that it is possible if you don’t give up. I believe “Don’t you Dare Read This Mrs. Dunphry” shouldn’t even book a book that is considered for banning.
I think that book banning is a form of mind control, it is used to control the way people think. If a fourth grader was being neglected by her parents, and beat by her father but was to scared to tell anyone, wouldn’t it be nice to allow her to read about it in class, with its teacher and peers it knows and trusts? Maybe then they would feel comfortable taking about it with someone that can help them. When I was in elementary school I was just starting to become interested in things like this, just learning about what really goes on if everything that is remotely bad is banned or censored what will happen to the children who go along in life thinking that life is easy and goes undisturbed. They are in for a serious shock. Why not educate them while they are young and have time to learn? Some people would argue that and say that elementary student don’t have the emotional abilities and understanding of the things that go on in society, but yet every day on the news you hear at least five stories about a child abduction, rape, or murder. Readers need to know that this stuff takes place and that it is okay to reach out for help.
Today you rarely hear about stable families. Instead you hear about families that aren’t split apart, abusive fathers, alcoholic mothers, and drug addicted siblings. These things often take place with the 7 or 8-year old watching all this happening. Knowing nothing about what they are supposed to do about it, whether they do it too or turn it down, no one was there to teach them right from wrong. When they have that occasional bad day who do they run to? Who do they tell what happened? Talking to friends in your age group gives you a limited or narrow perspective. Children need adults in their life, they can be on their own when they are no longer a minor at age 18, not 7, not 11, not 15. Eighteen. What is a child expected to be able to do at such a young age, when they don’t have a parent, friends, siblings, or teacher to talk to? In this book the young girl discovers writing, she writes down her problem and communicates her thoughts and notices that she doesn’t feel so lonely. How will kids learn to deal with this behavior if they can’t read it? Maybe reading a real story about a girl their age with the same problems will show them that everything will be okay, that there is a way out; they only need to keep trying. This will not be learned unless they are exposed to this type of literature. It is nice to have someone to talk to but when there isn’t, there is still more to do. Other alternatives writing poems, drawing, writing stories, if no one ever is willing to try this will be a continuous circle.
Sitting in class reading this book, a young boy or girl may realize that they need to tell someone, they can no longer live their life this way. This is one of the benefits of allowing children to read a first-hand account of real life situations.

The basic outline for this type of essay is introduction (last sentence being your thesis) body explaining and supporting your thesis, and conclusion, which is a recap of your ideas. First, you really have to proof read this, and the best way is to read it out loud. This is your thesis,
"I believe “Don’t you Dare Read This Mrs. Dunphry” shouldn’t even book a book that is considered for banning."
book a book is a typo, also avoid using phrases like "I believe". You're writing this paper, so the reader knows that it is your belief.
"'Don't you Dare Read This Mrs. Dunphry' should not be banned in public schools." is stronger and to the point. Remember, in a persuasive essay, you have to project confidence in what you are telling the reader.
Also your paper just trails off at the end. "This is one of the benefits of allowing children to read a first-hand account of real life situations." is the last sentence in your paper. The end of your paper should cover all the points you made in the body section, not only one.
*Identification of self through literature
*The importance of an uncensored outlook on society by children
*Censorship as a form of societal brainwashing
These are just a few points I took from your paper, and I would recommend isolating these ideas and really focus on explaining each throughly and sequentially. Try to avoid jumping from one idea to the next without explaining either thoroughly.
Anyways, I hope I helped a little and I hope you have more than a couple of days to go over this paper before it is due.
