I wasn't limited from horror movies or books when I was a kid. Heck, I remember being 12 and my parents renting Prom Night and Friday the 13th for a
sleepover of mine to watch. However, I actually ended up having recurring and gruesome nightmares as a kid. The way I see it is that kids are
imaginative to begin with. They don't necessarily need fuel for that fire.
I hope you're right about your daughter's ability to self monitor. I don't doubt that some kids are capable of it, particularly as they grow
older. However, I've seen more pre-teens and teens engage in some pretty noxious activity online than you can ever imagine as a gamer. I'm
actually basing my cautions directly upon those experiences.
