You're ruining my life!
« on: February 12, 2012, 04:29:50 PM »
So today my 4 year old walked up to my wife and said "You're ruining my life." After my initial response of flipping out and demanding an apology, he told us that it's what the bear said to the deer in Open Season. I've seen the movie a dozen times so I just "knew" it was fine for him to watch! Then I realized how many questionable lines I hear in "kids" movies, from Shrek to Open Season. When did "kids" movies become so questionable? How do we, as parents, handle this issue?

I won't even go into the dangers of leaving cartoon network on in the evenings!  :LMAO:

I rarely reprimand my daughter when she spouts off.  98% of the time it's an emotional reaction or she's just repeating something she heard.  I stay calm, then I talk to her.  If she doesn't want to talk, I let it go.

Attacking with an emotional response is only going to escalate the situation.

As to the adult situations in kids movies.  I'm more worried about when she gets old enough to understand them than I am right now.

I'm with Keet on this one.  We get"Well then I'm not going to love you anymore" a lot.  So we just say well I'm always going to love you.

Every day, from here to there,funny things are everywhere
