My 7 year old loves to watch Animal Planet. Usually that's okay with me but last weekend he watched two episodes of Lost Tapes. One was about the Chupacabra and the other was about the Monster of Monterey. It scared him to death. He slept in my room for 2 days before I finally convinced him they were not real and he went back to his own room. He agreed that maybe he shouldn't watch the show again if it scared him that much.
Well, he watched the show again this past weekend. I didn't watch it with him so I don't know what it was about but he said something about a Death Worm. He slept in my room again last night and promised that he would sleep in his own room tonight. When it came time to go to bed he didn't even want to go upstairs by himself. So, I told him to lay down on grandma's bed. I went in to check on him and found him fast asleep with the cat stretched out at his feet.
I'm going to have to make sure he doesn't watch it again next weekend.
