PG = Parental Guidance ("Some material may be inappropriate for younger children. ")
Well to be honest in a PG movie today It may be the norm to subject children under 12 to Tarantino type torture, but the last time i looked Robots was
classified as PG and no adults were dressed as extras from fight club torturing people in a children movie...
and i would not expect those scenes for under 12's. The language maybe ..it seems to be the standard for some offspring...
my son is 6
the bridge to Terebithia may have been dark for some, but my son liked it as life continues ...and he is aware of that..
the film ratings board is made up of people who are handpicked by the movie industry and work for it. The ratings are given according to criteria that
have never been made available to the public
In September 2000, the Federal Trade Commission published a landmark report showing how the movie industry has routinely marketed violent
entertainment to children under the ages considered appropriate by the industry's own rating system. The report described a host of unethical
marketing practices used by the industry to draw children into violent entertainment. One common way is to market violent toys linked to movies rated
PG-13 or R to children as young as 4.
Two years ago, six major medical groups – including the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Medical Association, and the American
Psychological Association got together and issued a statement on the effects of entertainment violence on children. After reviewing hundreds of
studies, they found an overwhelming causal connection between media violence and aggressive behavior in some children.
They also found that children who watch a lot of media violence can become desensitized to violence in real life.
nothing confusing about it really
just a warning maybe to parents with more ethical philosophies
