I feel this kind of thing should be dictated by the parents, with that being said who is left to dictate when the parents are unfit? The government? In our society children are exposed to violent and or derogatory television daily. Now who other then the loving parents is to say what is acceptable is debatable. And here is the kicker "Batman" has and is marketed to children (coloring books, shampoo, clothes, toys,ect) and at the same time marketed to adults so how do we keep the kids from wanting to see the new adult-themed movie? PG-13 in one parent's eyes maybe rated R in anothers, in a perfect world every child's parent would view before to see if they feel its appropriate. As with most things its up to the parents to know what their children are viewing.View Thread
