This was undoubtedly one of the worst parenting moments in my life. We had seen the trailer and Z said he wanted to watch this movie.
It was the Halloween weekend and seemed rather apt to watch this movie. I even checked the reviews online and they mostly said good for the whole family.
Some scenes especially Slappy (which resembled Chucky) were creepy and really scary for the kids.
I offered to leave the theater but Z was adamant about staying on. I tried to make light of the monsters but I knew they were scared. X told me openly that he was scared and it was a great thing that he fell asleep halfway.
I had thought the kids would be too scared to sleep in their own rooms. By the time we got home and I was done with bathing, both boys were snoring in their respective rooms.
Times like this I wished for the boys to be forgetful and not remember the so called scary monsters.
On a side note, Mr H had never heard of R.L.Stine before!
