Reader input: Protect kids from trauma

-A +A
Recently seeing the new “Jurassic World” movie in Auburn at a Sunday matinee, I was horrified to see many young children there.  Not just 10 or 11 year-olds, but pre-schoolers, toddlers and babies. 
What are parents thinking to take their young children to what is essentially a horror movie?
If the law doesn’t prevent kids from seeing grisly scenes of monsters eating screaming, live human bodies, then parents must step in to prevent this. One young child was carried out crying, and another was sobbing in the lobby after the film. Who knows what nightmares children might have from these movies?  
When the earlier “Jurassic Park” movies came out, nothing could have induced me to take my children, young at the time, to these very frightening films. Parents: Protect your children from trauma — it’s your job!
