I had planned on leading with a joke about seeing a Christmas movie on the first weekend of November, but GeekDad is running it's holiday gift guide already, so the glass houses rule applies.A Onward! Fair warning: I teach Dickens regularly, and so am a bit obsessive about the source material.

Okay I can understand 4 parts might be scary for kids under 6yr old. I took 4 of my little cousins there all under 10 and were perfectly fine. I never thought my uncle was right Americian children are becoming sissy's. I took 6 kids to see this movie 11,10, almost 10, 9, 7, and 6 year old. two of them were just friends with one of the kids my cousins didn't hardly flinch. The only one that screamed were the 11 year old and 10 the others laughed at them. I didn't realize how spoiled and sheltered kids are here until then. My four has all either lived over sea's at one time or another. Maybe cause the kids parents are in the military it tough's you up. Man I went to see chucky with my cousins at 5yrs old I knew it wasn't real. If I was scared of a disney movie of all the things I would probably get laughed at. You know in Japan the average to see a voilent scene on tv to a kid is around 3yrs old. Yet the states has 3 time more murder rate. I love americia but man you kids are bunch of sissy"s.
