Though the case can be made that we are regressing intellectually, like it or not, people’s love for movies is not likely to lesson anytime soon.

Licensed psychologist Dr. Vicki Panaccione often suggests that parents have ongoing discussions with their children about the images they see and ideas they encounter while viewing movies.

Panaccione sometimes finds that the discussion of film can be a great ice-breaker in getting kids to talk about their fears.

“Movies, even children’s movies, deal with a lot of serious developmental issues,” she said.
