I'm always a little behind the lastest news, but this time it wasn't my fault.
Inside Out (finally!) began showing in Bangkok on August 12th. But we were there on opening day. I had heard wonderful things about it from friends in the states, and every one was true.
It would probably be even more perfect for a family with a pre-teen, who might be going through some of Riley's same struggles. Even so, I felt like it could give any family tools to use to talk about emotions more openly.
M loved it, and I could just see the gears spinning in his head... that everyone has these complex thoughts and feelings, not just him.
I would caution that L cried at more than one touching/emotional part. He liked it overall, and there was a good portion of fun and absurdity to balance out the sadder parts, but just a warning that very emotional kids will feel it.
But the biggest difference in our lives after seeing it?
