Look, now that I think about it when I was a about 8 I saw the original Charlie and the Chocolate factory and the part where they go into that tunnel
was freaking scary. But we all survived. So yeah, parenting always depends on the kid and every one of them are different in their intelligence and
maturity. A parent knows either way if something they are watching has made them uncomfortable and they will console their child. Kids have to be
scared, bored, excited, etc. to come out balanced and understanding of the world. Otherwise they reach 'adulthood' and their safe space bubbles
prevent any critical thinking.
Turned out my daughters had both already seen it (16 and 18). Which I'm cool with, they are arty, creative (lol) types. One was really into the
background story of it all and excitedly asked if I knew 'this and that' about all the hidden things. They both really dug it.
I have a couple of nephews, (11 and 13). I would watch it with the 13 year old and in fact if I had known I probably would have watched it with him
when he was 9-10. But his younger brother is another story. I don't think he would be capable of processing it even when he's 16-17....
So yeah, I think bringing up children in this thread is certainly not putting a step wrong Anaana! It is after all a 'kids' show so that subject is
bound to come up. Oh and by the way, you mentioned your child wasn't south park ready yet, however, this season and in particular last season were
really amazing. I hadn't watched the previous 10 or so seasons before it, but was advised it was really different. The entire season is now a
continuing story and they really deal with current issues really well. So yeah, when they are ready to deal with a few d@#k and fart jokes they will
learn heaps. They have really stepped up South Park and actually provide believe it or not a sensible look at safe spaces, bullying, social networks
and antidisestablishmentarianism which I can't believe I've now actually used in a sentence for the first time in my life!
(Or, just bugger off the kid for now and enjoy them yourself
but start at last season before this current one)
I just wish some of ATS would jump into this thread and watch this incredible set of short series about don't hug me I'm scared.
