What a great post! I too always get a little nervous when I hear people talking about "moral standards." Lots of people seem to think they're behaving morally when they revile someone for their religious or sexual orientation. And when people attack YA and children's authors for not being "moral" enough, I always object to the idea that kids are so mindless and easily led that if they see something in a book they're going to run out and do it. I try to let my characters become more themselves through the course of their stories. Sometimes they do things that parents might not like, but I think it's more important to create characters that kids can relate to. Hopefully as the character grows, so does the reader a little.
