Just say Darth Vader or Luke Skywalker around any age child, boy or girl and they immediately know….STAR WARS! The franchise has such a huge following and is bound to become a part of your child’s life at some point, but when is that point appropriate?
There are so many fathers that can’t wait watch Star Wars with their kids and get them immersed into it as much as they are. There are things to consider for sure. It is a story of hope, but there is the dark side to it, no pun intended. There is fighting, wars, evil lords.

The timing of our son turning 7 was fortunate since it was about two months before the release of “Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens.”
