You know, speaking of kids who want to be vegetarian, a kindergartener in our class decided to be vegetarian as an expirement (I promise I didn't 'witness' to her, though I've always told the kids that I'm vegetarian and what exactly I'm eating today when they ask)...her Mom let her do it for something like a week. But then told her she needed to have 'protien' and that she could decide when she was older if she was going to be vegetarian.
Disney movies....I think they can be good, but they are also problematic. They are fantasy...not real. The animals don't look real, for the most part and they talk. Children understand this is 'pretend'...not a real fish or a real chicken. Animals talking doesn't really happen, so can animals 'feeling' really happen either? I think it can teach children to seperate animals in reality from animals in pretend...because obviously animals in pretend are more like humans than anything else. Shark tales is an example of this, with the animals actually living in human like apartments. Odd.
I actually LOVED Two Brothers though. What an awesome movie. Whale Rider (which wasn't Disney) was excellent though not for younger children.
