Kids Films From Your Childhood You Can’t Watch With Your Kids

Published

Remember those great films you watched growing up in the ’90s? Back then, there was nothing more fun than watching someone your age getting involved in all sorts of hijinks. As you grow old and start your own family, however, those same films you used to love take on a completely different meaning. These five kids movies are simply hard to watch alongside your children.

Home Alone

Home Alone quickly became a holiday classic upon its release in 1990. As an adult, though, the biggest red flag involves Kevin’s family leaving the young boy behind, home alone, as the title suggests. Mistakes can happen, but this is something that easily could have been avoided. Also, couldn’t Kevin avoid the whole booby trap ordeal by calling the cops on the Wet Bandits first? It’s still an entertaining film for your child during the holidays, though.

House Arrest

As a kid, the premise of House Arrest sounded like fun. Children team up to stop their parents from divorcing by locking them in a house. As a grown up, this sounds like a complete nightmare. While the parents are locked up, the children don’t realize they’re missing work, which equals less money. Just hope your child doesn’t get any wild ideas after watching this one.

The Watcher In The Woods

As a horror film, The Watcher in the Woods was easily one that got you spooked. Many parents were shocked that Disney would produce something so creepy. Today, it’s still considered one of the best horror films for children. If you’re squeamish at body possessions and aliens, let your child watch this alone.

My Girl

My Girl is a film that still hurts as a grown up. Vada falls for Thomas, who dies from an allergic reaction to bees. As an adult, you’d never want to face this sort of tragedy. If you see your child watching My Girl, spend some time with them afterwards. They might need to talk about what they saw.

Camp Nowhere

As a kid, Camp Nowhere looked like a harmless adventure of kids building their own camp. As you get older, you’ll start to see the calamity that truly happened. Insane stunts went down, and they didn’t have anyone telling them what they could or couldn’t eat. With trends at every turn today, you wouldn’t want a getaway camp to be the next one.
