So you fast forward through the scary parts?

I was within Greys anatomy last night, an older episode. The one with the mom in the bubble and Alex reveals to her daughters that Snow White dies but comes back to life. The mom said that when kids are little you fast forward through the scary parts...


Do people really do that?

We watched The Fox and The Hound this morning. (It's raining and no one feels good.) When it got to the scary part I just held my boys close and kinda talked them through it. "Oh that bear is scary, so you think Todd will escape?" "That hunter is a mean old man, isn't he?" "Do you think Copper and Todd will become friends again?"

Nope. Life is scary. Bad things happen, but sometimes good things come from it. Life lesson.

No, but different kids can handle different things.

My kids have never cried during a movie, but my oldest D's has gotten anxious. Talking him through it helps.

I totally get that. But I just wanted to see if it was "the norm" to fast forward through the scary parts
