While a cheery message & happy ending are fine – ‘Fine’ here being a play on a polite answer often given in an obligatory manner that is often neither truthful nor accurate – my ‘Big’ kids want more complex stories and are gravitating toward grown-up entertainment.
I regret to inform you that A Series of Unfortunate Events is now streaming.
How very, very ‘Unfortunate.’
“A Very Foreboding Drama, the show serves up dark comedy that your big kids are probably ready for
– whether you are or not.”

(In case you missed it, click Truth in Magic: The Lies Parents Tell to read how we have encouraged our children to use their imaginations and to look at the world through a different lens. To see the possibilities – the magic – in everything around them.) But the reality is that my kids are wanting more complex entertainment and are gravitating toward grown-up stories.
