ok well my cousin watched the movie "the descent" today and now is scared and wont go to sleep , he is seriously wont shut his eyes, tears and the whole works

i need some needs of calming him down!
anyone know any good methods of calming a 9 year old down?

like for the "boogie man in the closet" i check the closet and show him its empty... but dont know how to combat this exactly...


Any ideas??


EDIT: running in there yelling "OOGIE BOOGIE BOOGIE!!!!" isnt an option , i want this kid to sleep tonight.

Maybe have him watch another movie/TV show that isn't scary at all. That way he'll get his mind off of what was scaring him, and if he's sleepy enough he'll even fall asleep before the show is even over. It always works for my nine year old sister. He won't completely forget about the movie, but it will probably distract him long enough to fall asleep.

What's the rating on the film. I say his parents are damn irresponsible for letting a 9 year old watch a film like that. There's a reason for the ratings you know.

Give him a bit of whisky or some other spirit, that'll calm him down.

Either that or stay up with him until he's so tired that he just passes out.

Oh, well in that case, I don't know what to tell you. What was the movie about? Or, at least what is it that was scary to him?

well its a movie about 6 chicks who go down this cave as an adventure thing , as as they go down there the path collapses behind them , then they figure out there not in the cave there meant to be, then they hear all these weird noises and one of them gets killed by this alien looking thing
and its one of those really jumpy movies , like there torch cuts out and its like pitch black, then the chick hits the torch and it flickers on and you see one of these alien things standing there. and the music goes "DAAAAAAAAA"


EDIT: Lol heres the exact thing i was talking about! lol lucky find!

Show him the extras on the DVD. Y'know, 'The Making Of'. Help him understand that it's not real.

Check the closet, then be like "oh there's noone there", then pretend to get sucked into the closet, yell a little and stuff, pound the wall, then limp out all exhausted. Tell him you took care of the monster.

Or, if you like, pretend you get murdered by the monster and don't come out of the closet at all. The kid will be fucking terrified.

You let a 9-year old watch the descent?! You realise he'll never watch the goonies in the same way now, right?

Just stop fighting it. Have him sit downstairs with you with the lights dimmed and the television on. He'll eventually fall asleep, and then you can just carry him to bed.

If he's nine, I can't imagine he'd last longer than midnight.

Yeah. Well not scary but none of them survive, that's not a nice concept for a 9-year-old.

What's next on your list of things to show him? Braindead?

He should show him Audition, a cult Japanese horror. Now, I consider myself quite an aficionado of horror, and quite immune to most 'scares' horror has to offer, but a few years back that film scared the absolute shit out of me. I'd say I was about 16 when I watched it, so I can't imagine what it'd do to a nine year-old...

Therapy?

No, it really wasn't.

Punch him, run him over with a bike, slap him with a skateboard, shove a fork in his eye. They'll all work in one way or another.

Just him in his room like you said, but leave his light on. Now turn off all the other lights, make a clicking sound outside of his door and tell him to stay in his room or he'll be eaten alive.

That should work quite nicely, or just feed him lots of turkey. It has ingrediants which make you tired.

Of course it's the morning so how did the little tyke do?
