    I always lean towards the conservative side when it comes to my kids and movies. I have seen all the Pirate movies, but my girls (ages 11 and 5) have not. I remember sitting in the theater watching the second film’s opening scene of all of the pirates being hanged. I looked over and there was a child ( no older than age 5) watching that little boy hang. I was horrified.
    While I think it really is up to the individual parents to decide what is appropriate, I do feel kids couldn’t possibly have the emotional maturity to deal with that kind of image at that age.
    As for me, I will wait a bit longer before introducing that kind of imagery to my kids, but will continue to watch as many as they make simply to drool over Johnny Depp:)

    I used to be VERY conservative about what my young kids watched. And then my oldest got older and started watching more……and then my next would slip into the room….and then somehow we got to the point that my whole family will watch movies like Lord of the Rings together. We are still very careful about letting ANY of our kids watch anything with lots of language or sex, but they all seem to enjoy and be able to handle the adventure flicks well.

    I would prefer to wait until it is out on video to watch it with any kiddos. It helps to stop the movie and discuss it when they get scared. I have seen all three and just like LOTR I would not take a kid (ten or older) to see it in the movie theater but, might watch it at home where I can control the “scary”.
    One of my friends kids who I have taken to see a movie likes my “video option” for something that is “scary” or “adventurous/ thrilling” but she still wants to see.
