Parents who think that children under the age of 10 should not be allowed to watch movies are highly mistaken. Movies have a great impact on our lives. Let’s have a look at the top 7 kid movies that every kid under the age of 10 should watch.
1. The Lion King
The first movie in the Lion King series shows a strong relationship between Simba, the central character and his father who is the King of the Jungle. It shows how they disagree in the beginning but ultimately Simba realizes that his father had been right in forbidding him to visit the Elephant graveyard because he comes face to face with the dangers lurking there. After watching this one, you can be sure your kids will never do anything you forbid them to. It’s a beautiful story about how baby Simba develops into a more responsible adult version of himself. There are a lot of other fantastic things about this movie too, but we don’t want to give too much away!
2. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone
Another classic! The first one in the Harry Potter series lays out an exemplary depiction of friendship and support when it shows Ron and Hermione following Harry in his quest to find the stone in the magical, fascinating world of Hogwarts! It teaches your kids to stand up to bullies like Draco Malfoy and make friends without any greed or ulterior motives and to keep them for life! It is very likely that the movie may compel your child to read the Harry Potter books as well improving their reading habits.
3. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
Your kids will absolutely love the family of Charlie Bucket who are not very well off financially but they manage with their large family in a small hut.

4. Home Alone
