Theres a few I want to know the title of...

1) Its a western movie where 3 kids run away from home with an older man and he trains them how to ride horseback and shoot guns. They eventually rob a bank and one of the kids is shot in the back. The man leaves them and the kids are left alone. I also remember a scene where one of the kids couldnt shoot for beans so they got him glasses, but they live in the desert by themselves. I dont remember any names. The man told the kids he was married but killed her because she was with another man in bed. That was told around a campfire. It was a color movie also, not black and white but its fairly old.

2) The beginning I just remember. Its a women, her son and her daughter. The daughter is 18, the women is a college professor and the child thinks hes 13 but hes only 11. Hes very smart.
