Sharing the books I loved as a child with my own son and daughter is one of the best parts of being a parent. Just the other night, I was reading "Where the Red Fern Grows" to my 9-year-old in one room while my husband read "The Giving Tree" to our 5-year-old in the next bedroom.
Sharing our favorite movies is almost as fun. From "E.T." to "Star Wars" (the original three only, thank you very much), it's so cool seeing them getting as jazzed about a story as I once did. And when my daughter began quoting "The Princess Bride," I knew I was doing a good job as a parent.
Today, we're extended our children's cinema education with one of the greatest movies of all time. That's right. "The Goonies." Follow the link to my favorite scene, when Chunk confesses to the Fratellis.
What's your favorite movie from childhood? If you have children, do they enjoy it as much as you?
