What to do if you are at a movie with a young child and realise the movie is not suitable for him?
Should you leave or not if he saw the trailer before and want to stay?
I would leave. Hopefully, I would research the movie before going and know if it was going to be too much for the child. I have to say sometimes the movies are okay but the trailers for upcoming movies can be too much. When my daughter was about 3, we took her to see an appropriate movie but the previews had something really scary and it really frightened her.
So I would leave because those kinds of things can last for years.
I agree completely with duffsmom. If the child is upset by leaving, try to use it as an opportunity to plant seeds about what is and isn't appropriate viewing for them.
exit immediately with a promise that he may view the movie later when he is older and more mature so that he can properly view it. protection to a child comes in many forms - this being one of those times.
