Disney's Strategy: Scare some sense into them

Watching the part in The Little Mermaid where Ariel signs the contract with Ursula, is stripped of her voice, and turns into a human.
Ma: This movie's supposed to be for kids, but it's a little too scary if you ask me.
Me: What are you talking about? That's what Disney does! Use fear to teach kids lessons. How else will they learn?
Watching the part where Ursula becomes ruler of the sea and turns into a gigantic raging sea monster.
Me: Uh... was this movie as scary when I watched it before? I don't remember it being like this.
Ma: See? I told you!
