We turn something on and once I see it's to much for her I turn it and once I do that she starts throwing a tamper and says she wants to watch it so I put it back on and now she loves to watch scary movies... Is this normal cause I love to watch them too

my son like to watch them too. I use to think that something was wrong with that too. He never has nightmares, so if your little one does not have nightmares after that then i wouldn't worry. Make sure that you explain the the little one that it is not real it is fake and just for tv.

I was watching Pet Semetery and Freddy movies at that age ... I turned out just fine, lol. In my honest opinion, it's better than her wanting to play video games. I think she's old enough to realize it's just a movie. If that weren't the case, I wouldn't a kid watch Sesame Street or a lot of cartoons either.

that would be good idea. Maybe watch them when she is taking a nap or when she is sleep. You are welcome..anytime

She does get scared but she likes to be scared thats why she watches scary movies and thats true she is affected by them so I will have to cut down on what she watches thanks

So you think that because your child isn't scared by someone tearing a human limb from limb or gutting them alive and enjoying it - your child isn't affected?

My husband had the same idea. He had no problems with it even though I did.



Until came the night when there was that one movie that scared the bejebus out of our son. I sure as hell wasn't getting up to soothe him since it wasn't ME that did it to him. My husband got up, calmed him down and ended up having to sleep with him.



Now he understands why I screen everything our kids watch.
