Beloved Ladykiller

Celest Wolfsbane
I believe that deep in the heart of the character Peter Pan, he wanted to remain a child because of his mother. When he left it was because he was so afraid of being an adult and having so many responsibilities. Being so young, the thoughts overwhelmed him. So he left home but one day realized that as all children do he missed his mother very much. However upon the return to his home, he found his mother had yet another child. This sparked pain that maybe he'd be unwanted and caused him to leave once more. Deep in his heart he longed to be the child that his mother rocked to sleep at night and protected from all the bad things in the world. He wanted to be free of responsibility so strongly that perhaps some where in all the magic, this wish too was granted and so a child he remained. When a child is robbed of their childhood they can never truly grow up and even as adults remain in a childish state of mind.

not to mention at the time of the story there was a war going on and young men were forced to fight. If I was a young man at that time with a war that didn't seem to be ending anytime soon I'd never want to grow up as well.
he said he didn't "want" to. ahaha young at heart it is!! heart

I would say he probably didn't "want" to grow up. It's just so much to do as an adult and their are plenty of responsibilties to take. Peter just wanted to have fun and not do adult things. Sometimes i don't want to grow up either l0l.


Oh Lawd, yes.

I've never read the original book but it was set during 1912 right ? Maybe because kids those days had to grow up and head to war ?

Or maybe because a adult has to work, have a job and all; while a kid can just have fun all day and don't have to do any jobs at all. Though even kids have chores like doing the dishes so don't really see the big deal not to grow up. Though at Never-land in the Disney version they just had fun all day. cat_smile
