Kids In Mind

Kids In Mind website, movie reviews

Sure, it is a PG movie, but why is it PG? Why isn’t it a G? Why not a PG-13? Here is a web site that breaks down in detail all the things that parents need to know to decide whether a film is appropriate for their children. If you ever felt like you didn’t have enough information to make that decision, this site may leave you feeling like you have too much information, and that is not a bad thing.
