Melody: Mommy, I hate you.
Mommy: Really. Do you know what 'hate' means?
Melody: Hm. No.
Mommy: Where did you learn that word?
Melody: Nemo tells his daddy, "Daddy, I hate you!"
Mommy: You've never even seen Nemo.
Melody: He's on my Talkin' CD at night.
Mommy: Oh, so he tells his daddy he hates him. Do you think that is a nice or mean thing?
Melody: Not sure. Maybe mean? He sounds madd.
Mommy: 'Hate' means you don't love someone at all and wish they were gone forever.
Melody: Like dead?
Mommy: Yes, like that. Do you wish that for Mommy?
Melody: No, I love Mommy. I love you the best.
Mommy: I love you too, sweet girl.
Melody: Why would Nemo be so mean to his Daddy?
That's a really good question. My girls have already learned Imbecile, Ugly, Idiot, Barbarian, Witch and Stupid from Disney movies. Do we really need 'hate' added to that list?
Why can't we have a children's move that is, I dunno, appropriate for children???
