What Should Children Watch?


A Discussion of "age appropriateness" in theatre and other entertainment media.


The essay on the following pages is more than fifteen years old.  I recently revisited it and updated the cultural references a little so that new teachers would know what I'm talking about, but I was surprised and a little saddened by how little I had to change the actual content.  With one glowing exception, our attitudes haven't changed all that much.


For ease of navigation I've put each section of the essay on its own page.
