Should I be encouraging my 2 year olds obsession with dinosaurs? My son is 2 and a half and has been obsessed with dinosaurs for as long as I can remember. He especially loves to watch real life-like documentaries. As you can imagine it’s very hard to find any that don’t involve violent attacks/hunts and often scenes where a dinosaur is literally eating another. As he’s getting older and understanding more I feel more and more uncomfortable with him seeing it- he talks about which dinosaurs are scary and occasionally about a dinosaur biting another when playing with his toy dinosaurs. Should I allow him to still watch them as they are educational and part of nature (past and present – he occasionally likes to watch docos on croc’s and things too). He knows so much about dinosaurs because of it and doesn’t seem fazed by the aggressive scenes at the time. He occasionally has nightmares but I don’t know what about and I’m sure most kids his age do. I just find myself cringing at some scenes but would hate to put a stop to his passion. Thanks so much in advance.
