Screen Before You Go

By Dr Bill Maier

FocusOnTheFamily_LogoSmallHave you taken your kids to a PG movie only to be shocked and embarrassed?

Parents have learned that you can't really rely on those film ratings. I've seen M-18 movies that border on obscene, and PG movies with horrible language and indecency.

And even some NC-16 rated movies can be too intense for little eyes.

Remember the flying monkeys in Wizard of Oz? I had nightmares about them for years!

Finding a movie to watch with your family isn't that easy. More and more you have to set your own standards and be diligent with your research.

There are some great sites on the Internet that screen movies and give details about inappropriate language and scenes.

And many of them review older videos as well as the latest ones.

A good idea is to always check a movie out before you go to the theater or rental store. And when in doubt, look for something else.
