Here is an article that is a must read for anyone who interacts with young people.

The definition of adultism is right on the mark; and the examples of how adults direct their adultism is relevant to our society. 

This article could help me explain what I have been trying to teach for a long time- that we do oppress young people, that we have to deal with our own early experiences in order to interrupt the flow of that oppression and that it is at the core of our challenges in schools and homes.

There are two parts to the article. Enjoy and learn
