Do you think 6 is too young to watch The Goonies? What about Spiderman the movie? I'm very hesitant, but my husband thinks it's fine. Any thoughts?

I didn't have the Spiderman movies when I was a kid, but my 6 year old daughter loves them. Of course if her dad asked me, I probably would have objected. The Goonies on the other hand, I loved that movie when I was that age, as did my brother and sister, and pretty well every other kid I knew, so I''m going to say that I don't think 6 is too young for it.

I don't think the Goonies is any scarier than any of the Disney movies we show our kids before 6...that said, I think I'd make sure I was sitting beside them for the scary parts...but then, I always sat beside them for the scarier Disney moments too

I personally think 6 is too young for Goonies. Mostly I think so because there are some scary parts and some language. i didn't want my kids exposed to that at that age. They were 10 and 13 before they watched that movie. I don't know about Spiderman, never saw it.

I think a 6 year old is too young for that. A six year old may get scared of something we adults find normal. Spiderman has a lot of fighting in it and I don't think it's right. There are better movies for children that age.
