How Soon is Too Soon To Take a Child to the Movies?
I’m a daddy. I love taking my daughter out to explore new things. So far we’ve pretty much tackled everything her little body can keep up with. From gymnastics to the art museum. Bouncy castles to outdoor parks and hikes. Now I want her to enjoy a movie theater experience!
See, problem is, I tried before. And failed. Total crash and burn! Even after buying her the popcorn and gummy bears she would not set foot into the movie theater. She said it was too loud and dark. I guess 4 years old is too young? Or is it?
Parents bring their kids to movies when they are babies. We all know, we’ve heard them crying Still, how does a parent prepare the younger one for their first movie going experience? And, in my case, how do we get them to not be AFRAID of a theater?
Maybe I’m just rushing things? I dunno. I just love movies and think she would love seeing one too. That is, if I can just get her INTO the theater. And we know gummy bears won’t do the trick..
A little help?
