One of the hardest jobs we parents have is deciding what movies we allow our children to watch. We have tried to preview movies for the kids so we can determine if they're appropriate. Just because a movie is rated G doesn't mean my kids need to watch it, you know?
I found a movie review website that has helped make our job a little easier. It's called Kids in Mind and it has become my go-to resource when deciding if we'll take the kids to the movies. Or even if we'll rent a certain movie from Netflix.
Kids in Mind rates movies in three categories, sex & nudity, violence & gore, and profanity. Each category is given a score from 1 to 10. Then the site breaks down each category with specific examples (without giving away the storyline) so parents can determine if a movie is right for their children. It's very thorough and much more helpful than the MPAA's rating system which is very generic.
So the next time you're trying to decide what move to watch, check out Kids in Mind. It will take a lot of the guesswork out of your choice.
