Here is what is sad. I haven’t turned the news on this week because I really don’t want the younger kids to know the whole “Wiener” scandal. A parent can use some movies as teaching moments. I’ve known some people who didn’t like “Romeo and Juliet” because they were young teens and suicide occurs. Some didn’t like “The Scarlet Letter” because Hester gets pregnant by someone other than her husband. I’ve read objections to “Jane Eyre” because Jane falls in love with Mr. Rochester (unknown to her that Mrs. Crazy Rochester is in the attic. Sometimes, a love story is just a love story. The characters may change but in the end.. boy meets girl and they fall in love.
Spot on, every word.
A parent can use some movies as teaching moments.
absolutely. even the Bible says our job is to teach our children, not to protect them forever.
i think your children are very lucky...
