“Should I let my kids see Twilight?”
I’ve heard that question from parents more than any other question in the last 12 months.
If you don’t know about Twilight, it’s more than just a movie… it’s been a youth culture phenomenon. And now it hits DVD on a special release this weekend (this film prompted a special Saturday release). My neighborhood Blockbuster Video store is staying open past midnight tonight (Friday) just to rent it out. They are expecting a huge response.
Yes, your kids will probably want to see it and will have countless opportunities to see it (including at school- for those high school kids who are in public schools. PG-13 is okay by most standards).
So what should parents and youth workers do?
We’ve written so much about it in the last few months, I’ll just provide you with the links:

In summary: If your kids do see the film, use it as an opportunity for healthy dialogue.
