Who would have thought that 5 minutes of this would scare a 3 year old beyond belief?
Disney has freaked my daughter out more than anything in the entire world.
Noah has been wanting to see this for months so when I saw it available on demand, I bought it for the kiddos. Within 2 minutes, she was thinking it was creepy. First off, where was all the color? Black and white did not sit well with Em. Then she was flat out scared. So we turned it off. No big deal. Then the tears came. Followed by panic attacks. Yep. My sweet innocent little girl is having panic attacks every night and at nap time because of Frankenweenie. This was a week ago. 7 days later, she's still petrified to go to sleep. She cries hysterically for hours every night. She has to fall asleep in our arms. I can't believe this has happened.
Am I a horrible mother for even thinking this would be a cute movie for the kids? I mean this movie is up for an Oscar. It has to be a good one, right?
It's my fault that she's scared to go to bed. My heart breaks every night listening to her cry. How do I make this up to her? How do I figure out a way to make the scary thoughts/images disappear from my sweet girl's mind? How do I bring peace to her precious mind?
