A friendly reminder from Common Sense Media. CSM is an independent body of reviewers of modern movies, books and music. They rate media for its age appropriateness taking into account not only violence, sexual portrayal, and obscene language, but also advertising placements (consumerism) , messages, educational value, role models, drinking, drugs and smoking.
It's a decent place to visit before taking our kids out to the latest, greatest movies. Even so, parents should probably preview the media they plan to share with their children. Opinions differ, and while the reviewing board may believe the film is appropriate for a given age, only parents and regular caretakers know each individual child's preparedness for a given film or book.
