What About What You Want?:
Do you think someone should be telling you what you can, or can't watch? Do your parents need advice on what movies they should let you watch -- or, are you a good judge of what's appropriate and what's not?
Most adults would say kids need guidance in this area and should not randomly be allowed to view any movie they like. The amount of sexually explicit content, violence and horror, coarse language or drug use is something parents should determine what they want their kids to see. Do you agree?
The ratings system is not law. Enforcing the rating system is purely voluntary, but the overwhelming majority of theaters follow the Classification and Rating Administration's guidelines and diligently attempt to enforce it.
Parents are encouraged to learn as much about a film as possible before they permit their children to attend. Reading reviews and feature articles or speaking with the theater manager or friends are good ways to gather information in addition to the ratings. Kids can do the same thing with parents.
If you want to see a certain movie -- search online for reviews and information on the movie with your parents. They can then make an informed decision about allowing you to see the movie. They may be more inclined to agree with your choice in movies if they participate with you.
