How We Determine Our Grades

After watching a movie with your children or students, we encourage parents and teachers to look for education opportunities to teach with movies. Here are a few discussion topics that can help with lesson plans or teaching in the home.

Throughout the movie, Bo and Prosper attempt to stay out of the clutches of their Aunt and Uncle. What reasons does the script provide for the boys’ distain of these relatives? Are any of them serious enough to deny the couple their right to act as a guardian?

In the story, one character wishes he was old enough to have the responsibilities and respect given to adults, while another wishes he was young enough to enjoy the simple pleasures of childhood again. Why are they discontent? Does age really equal wisdom, maturity, or lack of accountability?
