|My daughter's girl scout troop had an all night sleep over thing where they watched the Lord of the ring movies. I too was the only parent that seemed to take issue with this,a nd I pulled her out of the troop. Oh and the "badge" they were earning? Learning about different areas of the world|
|so since she knew her son would really want to see it she set about an intentional program to desensitize him to that kind of thing so he could enjoy the movie.|

So, he watches both Spiderman and Lord of the Rings. He knows that both are not real, it is really people dressing up and pretending like we do sometimes. I guess I, too, am 'desensetizing' my son.
However, we would never watch a 'scary' movie, like the Ring (that movie still scares me) or any of the Elm Street films.
