If you or folks you know are not aware of this website gem, sent it to them now. It is called Common Sense Media. It has ratings for all tv shows, movies, books, etc. There is a parent score and a kids’ score. Interesting when kids say okay for ages 14+ while parents say okay for ages 11+.
But their comprehensiveness is awesome. It is a 5-point scale for
- Positive message
- Positive role models
- Drinking, drugs and smoking
Image that?! The long-standing movie ratings have only move in the clear areas of violence, sex, drugs, and occasionally language. To see consumerism and positive message in a rating is very encouraging.
