Ears Covered !!!!!

From Nanny Kristen!! (A Featured Good Nanny)

I love to take my charges to the movies and my MB approves so we have much fun! We just saw "Daddy's Home " and I have good and bad news - it was hilarious from an adult point of view, but from a kid point of view the movie had too much adult content - curse words and content that will take away their innocence. I had to cover their ears more than once, I needed four hands !! The website said pg but it was really pg13. I would not take any child under 15 years to see it.

I also was not completely happy with the new STAR WARS movie either - it was bloody and scared my younger charge.

Any advice on movies - good or bad would be very helpful!

Use common sense media to screen films.it's a great resource. But really, you don't need a website to tell you those aren't appropriate for young kids. How old are your charges?

she sent it by email - her charges are 3, 5, 6, and the boy is 7 years

Screenit.com is also an amazing resource. It pretty much lists every single objectionable thing a movie contains.

(There's no way I would have taken anyone under 13 to see the new Star Wars movie without screening it first. There's such a thing as common sense lol)

Exactly! Why would you bring a 3 year old to see Star Wars. A Disney cartoon would have been a better choice. I understand you probably wanted to see it. But I would wait to see with friends instead.

The 6&7 year old are probably old enough for most pg movies but the 3&5 year old should still be watching g movies. And there is nothing wrong with the 6&7 year olds seeing a g movie too. I have not seen the advertisements for Daddy's home so I cannot comment on that. Good advice from the posters above to check it out before you go. I think that the movie industry is getting away with way too much and not being cautious enough with the ratings.

I can explain why someone might not know to keep younger kids away from STAR WARS - its 1st trilogy was fine for every age and there were fewer choices then. Parents aunts and uncles want to share what they experienced but - times change and younger nannies are better informed and on the ball
