Sometimes you have to look back on things from your childhood with adult eyes before you can fully understand them.
Like, why were you always afraid to watch The NeverEnding Story? Why did your friend's step-dad compliment you whenever you wore a dress? Why did the neighbor want you to swim at his pool even though you had a pool at your house? Why did Mr. Smith have to give up his teaching position in the middle of the school year?
These are just hypothetical questions. But you get the idea.
