My kids like to watch Wizards of Waverly Place on Disney Channel. In it, there are three kids – an older brother, a middle sister and a younger brother – who are training to be wizards. It’s good, clean fun, usually laced with lessons of honesty, responsibility and ethics in every episode. Often, it’s the girl, Alex who has trouble following the rules and we get to see the chaos and backlash that follow her choices. In one episode, Alex cheats on a Spanish test by sneaking a Spanish “pocket elf” into her bag (a tiny little expert/encyclopedia) and her brothers decide to make her suffer some consequences by giving the pocket elf some chocolate. (You NEVER give a pocket elf chocolate!) When the pocket elf bites her as she reaches into her purse, she becomes OBSESSED with chocolate.
Whenever I watch this, I must admit, I have the urge to make a CHOCOLATE ANGEL myself.
