What can my 9 year old daughter and I watch that are good teachable moment movies or feel good movies? I'd like to have a mommy daughter movie night with her. She is really not into one thing so she'll be open to anything, but just want it to be something we can talk about and learn from.

What can I do next?

We watched the movie "The Help" last Friday night. Our boys are 10 and 11. We all loved it.

I was worried that it might be too mature for them, but it wasn't at all. Remember, schools do teach some watered down information about the civil rights movement. It's a great opportunity to discuss it in a bit more depth. We all loved it.
