Why watching Charlie Brown could be much better for your children than movies like Kung Fu Panda, Wreck It Ralph, Turbo and Planes. Tough lessons about failure and humility vs “You can do anything” movies that reinforce the cult of self esteem. Younger generations often suffer from narcissism because they take it for granted that we should all feel good about ourselves, we are all special and we all deserve to follow our dreams.
I watched Headline News’ hour long special on Children’s Safety and the Predator Test with my two kids. HLN’s Kyra Phillips put 20 children to the test, seven of which failed. My 10 year old would have passed but my 6 year old fell for it hook, line and sinker. Teaching “Stranger Danger” can be misleading because most predators act nice, kind and unassuming.
