Let your kids read Harry Potter

If you’re one of those parents who don’t allow your children to watch/read Harry Potter because it promotes the devil’s magic, here’s a list of other television shows, books, and movies you should be sure to avoid:

The Wizards of Waverly Place

The Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit

The Wizard of Oz

A Wrinkle in Time

Cinderella

The Golden Compass

The Chronicles of Narnia (yup, the allegory of Jesus)

The Lightning Thief (oracles and gods? yikes!)

Coraline

Sleeping Beauty

Beauty and the Beast

The Little Mermaid

You get what I’m saying? It’s really stupid keep your kids from reading or watching Harry Potter because of the magic–you and your kids have been raised on books, shows, and movies about magic. You’ve just jumped on a bandwagon so you can look uber-Christian. 

Don’t let your own ignorance get between your children and literature.

    Haha. I had a good laugh after reading over this. Some parents are just so ignorant nowadays that it’s unbelievable. Another example besides this distaste towards magic would be video games. Some parents let their kids play rated M games, loaded with blood and gore and language, and they are fine with them talking to others online! Between the ages of 7 to 10! Once they get in their teen years, depending on this kid, they could allow it, but the ignorance from parents is sometimes outrageous. Haha well I needed a good rant. I promise I’m not an angry person 🙂
