The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) ratings board provides general guidelines to help you decide
whether a movie is appropriate for your child. An R-rated film contains adult content. A PG-13 rating cautions parents
about material that may be inappropriate for kids under the age of 13. A PG (parental guidance suggested) rating means
the movie may contain material not suitable for young children, and a G (general audiences) means the movie’s okay for all.
Though the rating system can give you a rough idea of what’s appropriate, it’s wise to do some homework before
letting a child see any film. Read newspaper reviews, or visit movie-review websites. Once you know the content of a
particular film, you can make a decision. If you decide that a movie is inappropriate for your preteen, don’t cave in to
peer pressure and let him see it. Explain the decision to your child. Tell him, for instance, that you’re concerned that a
violent movie could cause nightmares. Make sure your child knows that you care about what he is watching.
