My 13 yo DS asked me if he could go see Saw V this weekend. Obviously, I said no and got all the "you're not fair" etc from him for a while. Because a girl he likes was going to see it. Can you believe this? What kind of parent would let their kid see this kind of movie? I told him that not only would I not want him to see it, but that I thought adults should not even see this kind of movie, because it's not just scary, but it's about people being tortured and killed, so it seems to me it has no kind of redeeming value, and that if people didn't go to see these kinds of movies, they wouldn't get made, so I wouldn't even want my 19 yo DD to see it. Not that I was going to give into the moping, so finally I told him that if he didn't stop it, I wasn't going to let him go see High School Musical w/ his friends on Saturday either. So he saw that and liked it, even though he said "I can't believe I went to a G rated movie. There were all kinds of little kids in there."
