My daughter is four years old and recently she's been watching Super Mario Brothers. Anyone remember that old cartoon? Anyway, there's one episode she watches over and over and I come to find out there's a scene where Mario and Luigi are taken to a torture chamber to be tortured. Mario gets the water board treatment, Luigi gets his feet tickled and the little toad dude mushroom guy is getting his limbs stretched. I've restricted her from watching it, but now I'm worried.
While watching a nature show, she starts laughing when animals attack one another. Should I be worried?

I wouldn't worry; she is still only 4 years old. She may not grasp the concept of reality versus fantasy. I think you can briefly explain that it is not good to hurt or torture people and animals in the real world. Leave it at that until she gets older, or you notice some behavior out of the ordinary.
