Default Harry Potter

My 6 year old daughter informed me that her triplet best friends wanted her to sleep-over and watch the first Harry Potter film together. I've seen all the Harry Potter movies and was very pleased with them, but i think Monroe might be a little young for them. The triplets however are also 6 and have seen all of the movies up until #5. Monroe is not frightened easily and i haven't seen the 1st HP recently do i wanted to know if letting her watch HP with Skyla, Scarlett and Scelena would be acceptable.

I wouldn't let my kids watch unitl at least 8 or 9. That is age range for the first book. I especially remember the whole climax being very scary for a friend's kid who was 7 when he watched it.

Our almost 9-year-old is about to watch the first movie for the first time. She just read the first book and her teacher is about to finish reading it to the class. She sent home a note to the parents requesting permission for each student to watch the movie in class next week. Sarah is REALLY excited!

I our other daughter, Charlotte, is a big young yet--she JUST turned 7 this month. She's still too young for it, I think. She freaked out last month while watching The Neverending Story. It might be a bit much for a 6-year-old.

My son Ryan is 7.5 and we have watched the first 2 Harry Potter movies and he loved them. I think the first one is not too scary at all and fine for youger kids personally but it honestly depends on your specific child and what they view as scary.
