Is Twilight Appropriate For Children?

Is the Twilight Series Appropriate For Children?

Is Twilight for tots? On the set of their new movie, Reese Witherspoon introduced Robert Pattinson to her children, Ava and Deacon Philippe. While everyone seems to know who the British heartthrob is these days, we wonder if the actress's children ages 10 and 6 have read or watched the series. Moms are dressing their infants in aspiring vampire attire, naming their babies for characters in the saga, and confessing their crushes on Pattinson, but do they also deem the books and movies (thus far rated PG-13) appropriate for their children?

I took my 7 year old nephew to see New Moon. He's team Edward. ha I think it's fine for kids. Despite a bit of mild violence, it comes across as rather wholesome.

I agree, the first few were okay but the 3rd and 4th are starting to cross the line of inappropriate. It's not really PG if you ask me. I don't know though, they gear it for kids so unless I had read it first (and it took me a long while to read it now, and I'm not as busy as moms), I'd let my pre-teen girl read it - before I read it I had no idea it wasn't a book for young girls. But now I see the inappropriate bits.

Maybe the first few books are okay for younger tweens, but the 4th book is sooooo not okay for kids. As an adult, I am curious to see how they will turn it in to a PG-13 movie without shocking the world. I think alot of things are going to be left out, if you know what I mean :)

as far as the nearly tweens, i think it depends on the child/nearlyteen. I would have been fine with it, my sisters not so much. Twilight isn't really inapropriate in any way unless you're hiding your kids from all mythological creatures though. It's pretty pg.
