Honestly, as a little girl I was exceedingly skittish. I was scared of Disney movies and I couldn’t tolerate the Little Mermaid.

To say that I think these parents are making mountains out of molehills should say something.

I think it may have to do with the… American way of coddling children. I mean no offense to anyone at all, but I have seen that other cultures have less concern about their kids experiencing something scary or unpleasant. For instance, I’m under the impression that it’s pretty normal in Russia (any one can feel free to correct me if I’m wrong!) to tell your children to behave or the grandma witch Babayaga will get you. She will come and eat you if you are a naughty kid.

I used to be a skittish child myself but I have seen these commercials on TV and I don’t see a problem with them. They are not as scary as some parents claim them to be. Even when I was little I wouldn’t have been scared by these commercials. Truthfully with some commercials I don’t think children are even listening. 

I think parents today are too overprotective of their children. It’s one thing to watch over them in the backyard and set boundaries and put parental locks on the cable channels but to have a commercial pulled because parents use scare tactics as a way to make their children keep their hands off the parents desserts is ridiculous. 

My parents used to do this stuff to me. Such as don’t do that or Santa/Easter Bunny/Tooth Fairy won’t come.
