Talk to your kids about…

Big Daddy

Is it only a movie? Many would argue that Sandler’s anti-social antics are hilarious on screen, and even though they would never tolerate someone doing these things in reality, they still find them acceptable because it is only entertainment. Yet, with many young people being attracted to this type of film, can these imitative behaviors become real?

If your children see Big Daddy, talk to them about Sandler’s actions. What did they find funny? Why? Would this behavior still be funny if someone did it to them or their family?
