I want my daughters to have a sheltered childhood. I want them to not be afraid of things. I want them to feel safe.
Will is watching King Kong, now I am sure its a "great" film, but it bothers me. I know people who took their 5 year old children to see it. I can NOT fathom letting Rhayn watch that movie! It is too scary.
When I was growing up, the scariest things we ever saw were on Star Trek (that thing the worm-like creature that goes in Chekov's ear on The Wrath of Khan... ewww. That is the stuff of my nightmares!) I had a very happy carefree childhood.
There is nothing more that I want, than for my kids to feel that way, the way I felt about my childhood, happy and comfortable with it.
Back to that movie, if you have seen it, would you let your young child see it? Why or why not? I guess Rhayn is very sensitive to "deaf" as she calls death. She worries when people die, and asks a gazillion questions that I often do not have answers for. And- well honestly I have NO desire to see that movie, good thing Will agrees with me that Rhayn doesn't need to see it either.
