One of the things my daughter loves about Kate’s Club is interacting with kids she can relate to. She admitted to feeling like no one she knew had lost their dad before attending Kate’s Club. Multiple adults shared their stories of losing a parent with her, even some who lost their parent at her age. I guess the fact they are adults now did not allow for the connection.

T help her relate, I decided to start showing her movies on similar topics. We often have a movie night at our home on Friday or Saturday nights. The first one I showed her was Ghost Dad. An 80s movie, I liked as a kid. A family of 3 kids whose mother died and father almost passed away. She enjoyed the movie and it opened up a new dialog for us. Next, we watched My Girl. The main character is near my daughter’s age and her mother passes away while giving birth to her. She enjoyed this one as well. This movie also touches on the loss of a friend. We Bought A Zoo is the next movie we watched. She enjoyed this one a whole lot. It how long does cialis take to kick in could be because this movie is the most recent of the movies we watched or her love for animals. Either way, she enjoyed it and has watched it a few more times.

After noticing how much she liked these movies and the conversations they sparked, I did some research on movies. Several were movies we have watched before like Finding Nemo and Lion King. Both Nemo and Simba lost their mothers. Hugo, Life As We Know It, and Raising Helen are next on my list for us to watch.

Below Is a list of movies I found that are related:

  • The Jungle Book, Tarzan, The Secret Garden
  • James and the Giant Peach
  • Lilo & Stitch! (the movie) – Their parents have died and Lilo is in what does cialis do danger of being separated from her sister.
  • Hugo – the story of a 12-year-old boy cialis coupons of the same name who after the tragic death of his father, was forced to live with his uncle. His uncle was an alcoholic who worked as the timekeeper for the large and bustling Paris train station.

  • My Life as a Dog (1985) – An excellent Swedish film about a twelve-year-old boy whose mother is dying. The boy’s distress, coming of age, and conflicts with peers and adults are presented with directness and sensitivity.
  • Lemony Snicket’s a Series of Unfortunate Events (2004) – This enjoyable movie fantasy is about three talented children whose parents die in a fire at the beginning of the story.
