Cookie, DD has no problem with cinematic violence or emotionally distressing content-- she watched The Boy in Striped Pajamas without a major problem when she was 7 or 8, I think, and Schindler's List not that long after that. Harry Potter was no problem. smile

It was only before she was able to distinguish fantasy/reality well (really, <2yo) that we saw this effect. That's why I mentioned it as a goofy thing that appeared, and then submerged, only to reappear later on in other forms.

It wasn't until she was around 3-4 that she realized that some things on screens ARE real, and some are not.

Schrödinger's cat walks into a bar. And doesn't.
