Friday Review - Teaching Prejudice While Watching the Bad Guys Movie
Apparently I am really into movie reviews lately and how they relate to parenting.
Today's Friday Review is another movie review - this time with the newly released Bad Guys movie. The premise of the movie seems simple enough - the 5 quintessential bad guys in most story books (Big Bad Wolf, Shark, Tarantula, Piranha, and a Snake) are cast by society as bad guys, so they obviously act bad. They steal. They cheat. And they just don't care.
Yet as the movie goes on, we see them "try" to be good. I won't give the story away here, but it is easy to see how easily swayed the masses are on if someone is "good" or "bad" based on social media posts, hearsay, and general opinion.
What a great message to teach our kids. Most of our kids will be raised with social media as part of their every day lives, sadly. They will have to manage understanding what they see online and trying to decide if it is true or not. They will have to form opinions based on their experiences, and sadly some of those experiences will be in the online world.
Listen in today as I discuss this topic and how I think you can BEST approach it with your own children.
