One of my daughter's friends (8 years old) was crying and complaining about a horrifying movie trailer that she saw 5 times last night and couldn't get out of her head. She described it as "puppets ripping out people's tongues." I figured out from a Google search that the movie is "Dead Silence" and watched the trailer: YouTube - Dead Silence Trailer - In Theaters Friday! I asked her why she was even watching it to begin with, and she said "because my mom was watching TV and I didn't have control over it." Am I out of line to think that this is inappropriate of her Mom to be so oblivious to how a trailer like this could be impacting her daughter? Mind you, this is the same Mom who watches "Cops" in front of her daughter - and as a result we had to request that my daughter is not allowed to watch TV when she is visiting their house.
