When we watch scary movies and shows on television, we see images, events and ideas that we might never have seen in our whole lives before. This can have quite a powerful and lasting impact, particularly on kids.
When you get scared by something you’ve seen in a scary movie, it can make you very upset, not want to go to bed at night, have nightmares, not want to be left alone, afraid of getting hurt and of bad things happening to you.
Young kids, especially those under 7 or 8, often find it hard to know when something they see in a movie is real or make believe.
