Ok, please be nice. I might just be very sensitive here but I have never seen info about this anywhere and thought I would ask what other parents have thought or done. My 2.5 year old dd seems to be very sensitive to stories that have a "bad guy" or movies where bad things happen. I will give you an example. At Christmas time my dh was watching "A Christmas Story" thinking it would be fine to have on with the kids around. All of the sudden it came to the scene where the kid gets his tongue stuck to the pole (which I have done as a kid- haha) and my dd's eyes were wide with fright. I had dh stop the movie and explained that the boys mommy came and put water on his tongue and fixed everything etc... but then she woke up crying for several weeks after that.
I just feel that she is not able to understand the whole bad-guy idea yet, even in children's movies like Disney movies etc. And I also kind of feel that she does not need to know about bad things in the world yet. I am just wondering if any other people feel this way too? About what age does that whole good guy/bad guy thing start to make sense to them and how do you know they are ready?

Each kid is different. My kids love watching the good guy beating the bad guys.
