The Movie “Wonder” Will Bring You to Tears #GIVEAWAY

Wonder Movie

I am not sure if you are looking for a tear jerk-er for movie night, however the movie Wonder is a MUST see!

As a mom of two young boys, I always worry about them bullying another child and it’s something I am constantly talking to them about (especially my 7 year old). I have tried explaining to him that it doesn’t matter what someone looks like or how they act, there are no excuses. No child ever deserves that!

The movie Wonder is about a little boy who was born with a rare facial disfigurement. His mother (Julia Roberts) and father (Owen Wilson) decide to stop home schooling him and integrate him into a private school. With kids staring, laughing and whispering about him, the movie follows this little boy, Auggie and his daily struggles to fit in. Having made a friend Jack, he soon feels more content in his environment, but within time he stumbles upon a bunch of kids (including his one friend) making fun of the way he looks, calling him a “freak” (cue the tears) and for the remainder of the school year he is bullied by this group who do and say awful things to Auggie. Not wanting to ruin the rest of the movie for others who have not seen it, I can say that the movie finished and I noticed that I had a big smile on my face (of course with tears still streaming down my face).

There are so many important lessons that come out of this movie which is why it makes a great movie to see with your kids and to discuss with them after:
1. Don’t judge a book by it’s cover
2. Be a leader not a follower
3. Choose kindness  

I know you will enjoy this movie as much as I did and I really recommend watching it with your older children

I am giving away 4 copies (yes that’s right 4) to my readers! The contest is open to residents of Canada only (excluding Quebec). You must be 18 years or older to enter.

    I haven’t seen the movie, but it looks like a good one. This would be a great family movie since I do have 3 kids. The movie is preparing the young ones that the real world is cruel sometimes and we all have to face it at one point or another and learn who we really are. I feel that this movie will show that.
