As part of the TalkEarly team for Responsibiliy.org, (encouraging early convos with kids about responsible drinking), I had the idea of putting together an interesting quiz that may even surprise you!
This isn’t to highlight good or bad impressions of alcohol, just to show that early impressions do exist.
Some are just seconds, but try to guess which of these 20 movies feature scenes with alcohol. (You’ve seen some a bazillion times, but just guess for the ones you don’t know.)
1. Peter Pan
3. The Incredibles
4. Despicable Me
6. Ice Age
10. Kung Fu Panda
11. The Hunchback of Notre Dame
14. Snow White
16. Lady and the Tramp
17. Horton Hears a Who!
19. Beauty and the Beast
20. 101 Dalmatians
When you have a kid, right away you can see that kids are blank slates, then it dawns on us that we’re not the only ones who get to draw on it. They pick up stuff from everywhere.
This post isn’t against alcohol, in fact I’m having a glass of wine while I’m editing it. This is just an entertaining way to realize the exposure kids have from an often unexpected place: animated movies.
Probably a good idea to make sure your kid has the right info about alcohol so it’s not an overlooked part of their School of Life education. Talk to them early about underage drinking and responsible consumption.
Thanks to Responsibiliy.org for sponsoring this post and just being all around rad people.
