Parenting Rule #49567

Do not, under any circumstances, think it's ok to let your 7yo (plauged with generalized anxiety) watch the movie "Soul Surfer". I had watched it previously, and really didn't think the shark biting the girl's arm off was that scary. I loved the story line, loved the fact that it had a Christian message complete with Christian music, loved the story of triumph and hard work. I really thought it would be a good family movie for us to watch together.

It's 9:13 and Avery is still awake. She just chatted with James from the stairway. I asked him what the problem was and he summed it up in one word: "movie". Grrrrrreat.

haven't seen the movie, but my folks let me watch part of "Jaws" when I was in 3rd grade and that was WAY too much for me. I still remember crying about it. :-)

Poor thing. Hope she has gotten over her fear.
