My six-year-old daughter has always been big into superheroes. Lately, she’s been asking me what Santa’s super powers are. Her enthusiasm is contagious to her three-year-old little sister as well.
Teen Titans seems to be a particular favorite this month. They’re superheroes lite. As kids or teens still growing up and finding their own way, they still make mistakes and learn from them. She loves Starfire and Raven, in particular.
I was also into superheroes as a kid (and admittedly, still am). I love comics and graphic novels, and perhaps that’s partly why I find myself so entertained by my kids’ superhero obsession. I love to see their imaginations run wild as they play superheroes and villains, dreaming up all sorts of potential super powers and rescue scenarios.
