'this is why I loathed being a teacher! Young people are so infernally convinced that they are absolutely right about everything.'(p.438)
Harry Potter, what a childish boy he is! His reckless attitude irritates me. It also is pointed out by his friend, Hermione. 'sacrificed himself to keep you in school,Harry!'(p.587) 'if you get throw out today it will all have been for nothing!'(p.588)
I did regard him as unmatured. But is that judgment fair?
'the world isn't split into good people and Death Eaters'(p.271)
'in fact, I am neither here nor there'(p.759)
Harry might be partly child and partly adult. As the world can't be defined by dichotomy.
'He's not a child!''He's not an adult either!'(p.84)
When I deny Harry's attitude, I might deny youth's possibility of growth.
