I concur with Joel. My wife and I raised 3 children
and are currently co-raising two granddaughters.
Many were the hours that we watched disney flix
like 20 Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, Dune, etc.
and talked about the plot and theme afterwards. We
encouraged our sons to develop imaginative skills
playing D&D. They currently are PhD Biological
scientists and professors.
During our annual visits we used to talk about
their upbringing during our families recovery from
chemical dependency as a means of clearing the air.
Our adult children's memories all had fond recall
of our movie, TV and video game experiences.
We are doing the same bit with our granddaughters
(4 & 6) to stimulate their imaginative sense. What
is critical is the communications during and after
the imaginative events. They love to answer
questions as well as ask them.
