We’ve let Toren watch a lot of movies that could reasonably lead to nightmares for a 3 year-old: all of the X-Men, The Lord of the Rings series, all of the Harry Potter movies, every superhero movie you can think of (including the dark Batman series), etc. Since we let him start watching those movies, he’s never once complained of a nightmare.
Last night we let him watch a show from the Disney Channel featuring Mickey Mouse (via Netflix, of course, we don’t have cable). He woke up screaming twice claiming he had nightmares!
Logic insists that:
Disney = nightmares!
