It's Parenting Tips from Porn Stars Time! Satine and Mandy went and saw Brave and have informed me it would make a fine opening gambit in any serious campaign to D&Dify such children as you might have access to. These are Mandy's comments from G+. Blogger made the formatting all funny. I like it.
[There was a 6 year old girl with them ]. She was a bit scared at one of the bear parts but otherwise she loved it. However she already likes dragons so it won't be long before she has her own dice I think.
Hey you guys with small daughers, I don't envy you what's ahead. Girls are way harder than boys in my opinion and I am not brave enough to risk ending up with one. The movie is a bit about that difficult time.
Yeah I wouldn't be able to handle that. Seems like dads do better with daughters like that a lot of the time. I got on better with my dad than my mum. Like the girl in movie I wasn't ever what she expected, wanted, too much like my father, but we got over all that in time. She learned to accept me for me and I learned to reign myself in a bit for her comfort, out of respect that she earned rather than demanded.

How's the movie as a whole for younger kids? Most of the reviews, even the positive ones seem to all agree that it lags and can be pretty dull at times.
I couldn't imagine it being described as lagging. Certainly not compared with the Disney that came out when I was Between 6 and 10 years old. But I liked a lot of those when they had bits that focused on the kinds of things this whole story was about. Maybe I always had different standards than most.

Well that does give me some hope. My daughter is on the fence about this one, she says the trailers look pretty boring.
The talking bits didnt seem too long, there was a kind of a montage bit where they were showing the Princess's lessons at the beginning (public speaking, history, etc) and that was the only part I noticed that could be a bit much of the same person speaking (the Queen). There was also a part where there was some arguing that could also be a bit tiresome for a very young child. I think the ideal age range might be 7 to 11 or something. However all kids are different. I was reading my parents books at 8 and watching Apocalypse Now with dad so the idea of too young to follow is kinda over my head. I just don't get it. I think most kids are way smarter and more capable than they are usually given credit for.
somebodyBased on what you've said I think she'll be all right with it.
