Today, I'm talking family movie nights and I've gotta be honest. I need your help. My big kids are at that age where they don't want to just watch an animated Disney movie when we're all piled on the couch. They're six and seven and want to watch a movie with "real people"-their words, not mine. But, I'm having the hardest time finding movies with real people that are safe to show to my kids.
Where do I go when I need help with things like this?
I'm not saying I'm the perfect parent and my kids have never seen anything that has a naughty word. I'm just trying to prevent more stories like this...the other day, I saw Camp Nowhere (do you guys remember that??) at the store for $3.00! So I grabbed it. Was pumped to watch it with my kids and then shocked when there were three curse words within the first thirty minutes!
I thought I'd share our Top Three Safe for All the People Family Movies and then I REALLY want you to share your favorites as well.
I've gotta be honest. I'm not sure I've ever seen the end of this movie. All the singing tends to put me right to sleep, but my kids love this movie. I love that it's safe for them to watch!
Oldie but goodie!! My kiddos all love this movie. And I do too. :)
Our family loves both versions of this movie! Do you have a favorite?
Apparently, we're into a musical. ha!
A few others that didn't make the list...
The Parent Trap (I LOVED this movie growing up! Hayley Mills version, I should add.)
Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory
E.T. (Ebby Lee isn't into this one.)
This is where I want to hear from YOU! Please share your favorite family-friendly movies.
Thank YOU! I'm looking forward to getting some new options for movie night! XOXO
