I think rating systems are very good start. I find them - generally to provide good guidance for parents and a lot of websites will also - if one googles parent feedback or kind of movie, they're very helpful however each parent is the world's leading expert on their child. And so, this information how to be siphoned through the lens of that expertise . When my son was 11, we played Halo, an M Rated video game. He doesn't have any M Rated video games in his library except that one because I knew it was okay for him for us to play together. Likewise when my daughter was 10, we watched a G rated ghost movie that a lot of kids her age had seen without effect but for her it made her cry and be scared and so it's important to turn it off. So, I take the guides as a starting point but then I refined it with my world's leading expertise as parent.
