The Pros Of Watching Movies With Your Kids
There are plenty of advantages to showing movies with your kids. Here are just a few:
- A great way to learn about history. Many of the movies on the big screen were inspired by actual events that happened years ago. By watching these films with your kids, you can help them learn more about history and the sacrifices made by those who came before them.
- An opportunity to bond with your kids. It might not always be easy to find the time to bond with your kids, but a fun movie is the perfect excuse. While you’re at it, you might as well make it a family movie night and invite some of their friends to join them.
- An opportunity to discover new things together. You can discuss the movie as it unfolds, pointing out key scenes and important characters. In this way, you can expose your kids to a whole range of new experiences. And don’t worry, if it’s a children’s movie, there will be no cursing or inappropriate scenes.
- A way to appreciate good storytelling. Some of the greatest stories ever told were made into films. Many of these stories were very emotional, involving some very dark themes. If you want, you can accompany your kids while they watch these films to better understand what they are seeing.
- A chance to laugh together. The biggest objection most people have to movies is that they aren’t always meant to be funny. However, there are plenty of sitcoms and comedy films out there that are just as relevant now as they were when they were first released. If you want to make your kids laugh, you can always show them a comedy movie. But if you want to tell a more serious story, there are plenty of family movies out there that will keep your kids engaged and feeling some sort of emotion throughout the whole film.
- A way to appreciate a wide range of films. There are all sorts of films out there, from old classics to newer releases, that you can show your kids. If you want to broaden their horizons, this is the perfect opportunity to do so. With all these different films out there, your kids will be able to appreciate a wide range of styles and themes. And what’s more, you will be able to appreciate a wide range of films too!
- Great for teens. If your teens love movies, this is the perfect opportunity to expose them to a new world of films. Many teenage dramas revolve around family issues, so by showing them movies about families, you can encourage them to open up about their own family situations. And who knows, maybe after seeing how other families behave, they will be inspired to change for the better.
Where To Get Them?
The options for getting your hands on classic films are becoming more and more limited. With studios shutting down, fans are being left with fewer and fewer opportunities to see their favorite films. That being said, there are still venues where you can catch a movie, like drive-ins and art houses. However, the advantage of watching movies at home is that you can show them whenever you like. If you want your kids to see a specific film, you can always set your DVR or stream it from Netflix or Hulu.
Getting kids to watch movies can be difficult. Many parents report that their kids simply don’t connect with the characters or themes in the films that they show them. However, that isn’t always the case. If you want to see how your kids react to a particular film or show, you can always ask them. By watching this documentary, we were able to see how our kids reacted to seeing the film Mrs. P’s for the first time. They loved it!
With all the advantages that come with showing movies with your kids, it’s clear that this is a parent perk worth enjoying.
