Beaver isNOT retarded! Just naive. And back then, people were more naive and trusting. His thinking probably was "You should be able to trust your friends." and "Adults don't understand anything we're going through." Even though Ward told him numerous times that he did go through a lot of the same things, but times were changing, which is an understatement right now for what kids are going thru! Instead of things like skipping school (which still happens), losing haircut money and ripping pants on a teeter-totter, kids have drugs, sex/molestations/pedophiles and school shootings.
