Hi everyone. Contextually, I had an idea for a story about a boy developing into a (fine) young man. Some death (from (implied/stated?) violence) and violent conflict and the presence of "bad blood" between groups of people seems intrinsic. With that said, exactly how young could I possibly and/or should I aim the target minimum reading age (ie. 6+? 8+? 10+? 12+?) I don't know a lot about the theory of children and what's suitable, while I know some kids, I'm not a parent nor have had real parenting experience. Bonus: Any other "mature themes" and when they become acceptable/palatable/relevant to what ages. I imagine some of you who have actually studied English might have a quick answer here. (6+ seems too young to me).
