7 Movies You Watched as a Kid That Your Own Kids Do Not Need to See
Though I grew up in a very exciting time for movies — both '80s movies and '90s movies were the best — there were a few inappropriate and scary movies that my parents let me watch as a kid, which makes me look back and think, "Seriously, Mom and Dad, what were you thinking?"
Though ratings serve to let a parent know when their child should be able to watch a film, often they're ignored just because a parent is supervising (doesn't make things less traumatizing), or — in my honest opinion — they're sometimes rated lower than they should be. Everything made before the '90s was rated wrong, I swear. (For perspective, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, a movie most parents would — and should — let their kids watch, is rated PG-13. Jaws? Rated PG.)
