"Knowing how someone else had prayed really helped me."
In my early college years and during my first decade of teaching, the term kid was frowned upon. "A kid is a goat" would be the retort one would get when the terms child and kid were interchanged. As an educator for the past thirty-four years, however, I have observed the word kid move from rank disfavor to a perfectly acceptable term in the 90s.
The meanings, inferences, connotations, and even pronunciations of words change with time. The word silly was a compliment in Shakespeare's time, and all of us over forty can recall the day when gay referred exclusively to a state of mind. In short, let's all loosen up and let kids have its day in our unique and ever-changing English language.
