62. I was a movie geek when I was a kid and led me to a career in film...
Really depends. Some kids love them, others not so much.

I ate up films as a kid. For as long as I can remember, I had been going to the movies. My parents were big movie lovers, so it might have started via their influence.

The positive? I learned many things. My memory for old movies and details is scary. I know the technology behind lighting, film and lens theory, writing a script from beginning to end and all facets of productions.

The negative? I sentenced myself to 20 years of film making (old joke in the industry).

I saw the wild bunch and bonnie & clyde when I was a little kid. (probably the most violent movies of that time) and loved them both. I also understood that the violence was fake (I was around 5 or 6).

In all, it really depends on your kid and how you either love or hate movies.

Frankly, I think movies can be used as a teaching moment, but that's just me being a film geek.

my two cents.
