Bridget (10): Beauty And The Beast is really just an example of Stockholm Syndrome.
(Insert quizzical look from both parents here)
Dominic: Do you even know what that is?
Bridget: Sure, it's when someone kidnaps you, and you eventually fall in love with them.
Dominic: It's when you form a bond and sympathize with your captor.
Me: You were on the track though, Bridge.
Dominic: Do you know who the most famous example of Stockholm Syndrome was?
Bridget pauses for a second before announcing with conviction...
Bridget: Princess Peach.
At which point I looked something like this...
Me: Um, I think your dad was thinking of Patty Hurst, but yeah, I guess Princess Peach is a good example too.
Bridget: Who's Patty Hurst?
I knew that was coming.
I am utterly baffled at what kids know about and think about, sometimes.
