Child interest in scary movies
We struggle with our 5 year old who is currently interested in scary movies. He has split homes and the knowledge of it has come from the opposite home. Often, different characters come out at different times and has taken his father and I by shock. He has mentioned Pennywise, Michael Myers, Jason, Freddy, etc. At our house, we do not allow scary videos, movies or figures. It all started about a year ago and we had suffered with bad dreams which we bought a dream catcher and seemed to help a little. But as he has gotten older he seems to talk about it more this last time he came back to our house it seems to be all he has talked about. At times, I feel I should just let it happen it seems to be his interest and talking to the other home would not do any good, but I worry for his future and what having an interest at such a young age could reflect.
