“With great power, comes great responsibility”
On May 2, 2014, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will be hitting theaters and my family is very eager to see this movie. With the suspense, high flying action and amazing special effects, it is sure to be a movie not be missed. Although I love indulging in outings to the theater, I also like to take the opportunity to discuss and analyze the movie with my kids. The great thing about the Spider- Man franchise is that it is rich in meaningful messages. Take the quote above. It was one of the most powerful quotes from the movie. What is even more powerful is how you can get your children, no matter what their age, to apply messages such as these to their own lives.
To help you take this movie and turn it into a valuable life lesson for your children, a Family Discussion Guide was created. This discussion guide is a great tool to help begin conversations on important themes such as the relationship between personal choice and destiny, living a life that counts, sacrificing yourself in the service to others, and the nature of power. This guide encourage’s parents to engage in conversations with their children about thinking outside of themselves and challenging them to live a life that matter. Isn’t this every parent’s dream for their children? What a better way to motivate your children then relate life lessons to a super hero like Spider-Man? The conversations that will result from this guide will create a long lasting impact on your child beyond the blockbuster appeal.
The guide is focuses on the following topics:
- The Nature of Power
- You Are Somebody Who is Needed
- Time is Luck And Life is Precious
- Live Your Own Life And Make it Count
- Choices And Destiny
I love that the Amazing Spider-Man 2 Family Discussion Guide take the blockbuster hit and analyzes the messages from a Christian perspective. It allows me to take the important stories and lessons taught at church and apply it to my children’s life in a fun and interactive way. It allows you to take some complicated and serious content and provide a meaningful, hip fashion!
