Common Sense Media - film checks for kids


“Many 21st century children will never know the true pain of watching Artax drown in quicksand, or Mombi and her screaming heads. Some might think this is a bad thing?

But as a parent who has inflicted significant and ongoing nightmares on their child (I’m looking at you, Coraline, with your cold, dead button eyes) I can confirm that some films deserve checking-out before you whack on Netflix and pop off for a nap.

This website is a good way to quickly see which films you can manage (scary snakes are fine in our house) and which ones you need to give a wide berth (dead parents in a car crash, not so much).”
