Teen Titans Go! to the Movies

Story

Teen Titans Go! To the Movies is an animated movie involving DC Comic Books characters. The Teen Titans are a group of teenagers who want to be superheroes. Robin (voice of Scott Menville) is desperate to have a movie made about him like other famous superheroes - Batman, Superman and so on. But no-one, including the real superheroes and movie director Jade Wilson (Kristen Bell), takes Robin and his friends seriously.

Robin decides he needs a nemesis so he has a reason to become a famous superhero. He meets Slade (Will Arnett), who looks a lot like Deadpool and has dastardly plans to take over the universe by mind control.

Slade takes control of Jade and the other superheroes and lures Robin in by making Robin believe that he's going to have his own movie. Meanwhile Slade has gathered enough titanium to power his Doomsday Machine, which will bring the universe under his evil control. Robin and his faithful friends must prevent Slade from carrying out his wicked plans.

Themes

Good versus evil; superheroes

Violence

Teen Titans Go! To the Movies has a lot of animated violence, including many scenes of fighting with swords, lasers, guns and other weapons. For example:

  • Balloon Man crushes and destroys everything in his path.
  • Police try to shoot at Balloon Man but he just swipes them away.
  • The Teen Titans arrive and try to shoot at Balloon Man. They fly at him to stop him. Balloon Man captures Beast Boy, who transforms into a spiny anteater and shoots spines into Balloon Man's bottom.
  • The Titans are driving a car quite fast and run over a large cat, who had been playing a guitar. They run off and leave the cat on the ground.
  • Slade has two long swords that he keeps behind his back ready to use at any moment.
  • Slade electrocutes one of the Titans.
  • The Titans viciously attack an actor playing the role of Slade.

Sexual references

Teen Titans Go! To the Movies has some sexual references. For example:

  • Batman sits in the movies with his arm around another superhero.
  • Robin stands on the stage in front of a huge picture of Batman on the screen. Robin just fits inside Batman's groin.
  • In a strange scene at the end of the movie, Robin says to camera, 'Kids, ask your parents where babies come from'.

Coarse language

Teen Titans Go! To the Movies has some crude humour. For example, Balloon Man shakes his bottom for a long sequence then one of the Titans says he releases wind. There's also some name-calling, including 'morons', 'losers' and 'sidekick'. The Teen Titans are often referred to as a 'joke'.

Ideas to discuss with your children

Teen Titans Go! To the Movies is an animated superhero action fantasy based on DC Comics characters. Like the comic books, it has no resemblance to reality and very little story. It's likely to appeal to people who like superhero comics.

This movie isn't recommended for children under eight years because it has continual violence, scenes that might scare young children, and some sexual references.

The main messages from this movie are that friends are more important than fame and that you don't have to be a superhero to be super.

Values in this movie that you could reinforce with your children include the importance of friendship, teamwork and loyalty.

Teen Titans Go! To the Movies could also give you the chance to talk with your children about real-life issues like Robin's vanity. Robin thinks that a movie should be made about him and he gives up his friends to become famous.

Breastfeeding at night

Breastfeeding at night Breastfeeding at night can be a problem if you are deprived of sleep or if your baby has become dependent on it. The fact that your baby wakes up several times a night and does not sleep until after breastfeeding can have several causes.


Breastfeeding at night can be a problem if you are deprived of sleep or if your baby has become dependent on it. The fact that your baby wakes up several times a night and does not sleep until after breastfeeding can have several causes.
One of them could be the fact that you have established a routine by which your child associates the sleeping with the breastfeeding. This can happen if every night, just before falling asleep, you breastfed him. During the night the baby will wake up quite often and will not fall asleep until after being breastfed again.
Children, like adults, wake up several times during the night.
Most mothers know that a baby fed with powdered milk will have a quieter sleep and will wake up less times during the night than the one breastfed, because the powdered milk is harder to digest. Creating a connection between breastfeeding and sleep is scientifically proven, and if it persists, it will deprive you of sleep every night.
To get rid of this habit, try to establish a bedtime routine every evening. You can breastfeed him first, read a story, sing or change his diaper. In this routine you can incorporate a warm bath, a massage or even listening to a soothing music. You can breastfeed your baby in the evening, but do it sooner and then create a routine before falling asleep.
Put him to bed before he is completely asleep, to get into the habit of sleeping alone.
This will also help you during the night. This does not mean that you should never breastfeed it during the night, only that you do not have to make this a habit because it will also create problems for you and your child with long-term sleep.
If, however, you cannot get rid of this habit, you can make your life easier by sleeping with the baby in the same bed to make breastfeeding easier. Sleeping with your child is only okay if you are not a smoker, you do not consume alcohol and do not take drugs, you are not overweight and you are not very tired. As an alternative, you can put the baby's crib next to your bed.
Another option would be to try putting your milk, or milk powder in a container, and letting your partner feed the baby during the night so you can rest.
There are other causes that may cause your baby to wake up often during the night: they may be thirsty, they may give their teeth, they may be cold or they may feel bad.
