  • My MIL allowed my son to watch Jurassic Park when he was 2. I was pretty upset about it but then I relaxed a bit because he really liked watching the dinosaurs.

  • Unless a movie has large amount of nudity, full on sex, or excessive gore, I don't stop my children from seeing it... They are 3 & 4. Actually, they have already seen Jaws about a year ago.

  • I allow my kids to watch horror movies as long as it does not make them have nightmares and that there is not a lot of sex scenes

  • My daughter was watching with me before she was one. I think it's better to raise them watching them and explain to them starting early that it's not real, it's just a movie. I was raised like that, and horror movies never really freaked me out very bad.
