Corbin loves pirates LOVES! Unfortunately, he tends to get too worked up (and violent) after watching pirate movies. So last night we pulled them from our library. We've also taken away all his pirate toys as part of an earlier discipline issue a couple weeks ago.

When we first took the toys away, Corbin pointed out that we forgot something [to take away]. When I asked him what that was, he said "my imagination"

As proof of that, he showed me his latest bath tub creations.

    The kid got imagination ;-))

    I agree, we have to be careful to see what kids are watching and how they are absorbing their reaction. I do see some reactions (though not violence or anger) in my daughter and then we have to manage how to take it out of her mind by bringing something positive in that place for her.

    There's some non-violent pirate stuff, but it's really hard to come by. Disney Junior Commercial: Jake and the Neverland Pirates Perhaps.

    Keep it to the fun stuff (dressing up, finding treasure, parrots, pirate talk) and leave the swords out.

    +James Taylor We've watched that (probably all episodes) and my only complaint(s) is that the small kid always says "oh, coconuts" whenever something goes wrong. Basically encouraging children to use expletives The other issue is how the pixie dust is only to be used in emergencies but their definition of emergency differs greatly from mine.

    Last time I checked 'coconut' wasn't an expletive. ;)
