Scary Rated R movies....

 Once DD has gone to sleep I want to watch something on Netflix that is scary. Sometimes walking dead, or paranormal activity. Now we are working on moving but we are in a 1 bed room apartment so she's in the same room as us. I don't have the volume all the way up but regardless I am worried about the scary noises in the backround "getting" her and giving her bad dreams in her sleep. Am I just being a wierdo or has anyone else heard that "we" should not play movies like this in the backround. I am strict about not having these kinds of movies on when she is awake (she's 22 months old.)

At this age she really wont know what is going on if she does hear it.  Can you move whatever you are watching from into a different room?   We are in a one bedroom apartment as well so dd has grown up with me putting whatever on tv even if she is sleeping.   I dont blast the volume, just have it loud enough i can hear.  I do not like scary films but have watched reality type shows such as Paranormal state.

 I probably could get head phones and go into the front room. OH duh head phones! I normally fall asleep watching something while DH are watching something else. Not always though.

IDK.  Personally, I wouldn't do it.  We use earbuds on two extending cords (there's a headphones jack on the TV).  IDK about yours, but it might be worth exploring.

 This is what I do.  I watch American horror story on my tablet with ear buds.

 I don't think our TV has a headphone jack but I know my laptop does.

I would use headphones too. I might watch on my lap top instead of the TV so I could use headphones.

 If it were me I would watch it on my laptop with head phones.

  Scary movies are a great time to teach.  learning to handle fear and control it are life savers.  There are many tactics to use when children have "bad dreams".  One from South east Asia:  when a child has a bad dream the parent asks did the monster give them a present?  The child learns that they can face fear and come out on top.
