Spiderman

"It's fun to have fun, but you have to know how." -Dr Seuss

The things you learn during naptime at Kids In Distress.

The boys in the group I worked with, all about 4 and 5 years old, have a hero. His name? Spiderman. I watched them doing the Spidey sign complete with "pfft" sound to each other. They idolize Spiderman, and I wondered if Tobey Maguire or the people at Marvel comics ever realized how a simple character could give little boys a hero when they didn't have one to begin with.

id have to say marvel knew what spiderman would become bc he was the everyman superhero, peter parker was just an adolescent teenager who faced the same problems as everyone else: acne, girls, bullies, homework. that allowed almost anyone to picture themselves as spiderman, cuz even though peter parker was white, with his mask on u couldnt tell what race he was

Agreed, but 4 year olds don't reason that way. I understand your point, however.

I'm definitely in...my phone won't charge so I had to shut it off. I'm going to fix that problem tomorrow, so I'll call you then. In the meantime, if you all make plans, call 954-564-2147 and let me know.
