Restrict R-rated Movies
A new study has
found that kids whose parents don't let them watch R-rated
movies are five times less likely to try cigarettes or alcohol
than youngsters who are allowed to watch whatever they want.
The movie industry
uses the rating system to let the public (parents) know which
movies have adult themes. We should believe the ratings! No
fewer than 31% of kids surveyed (ages 9-15) said that they
had no restrictions whatsoever on which movies they watched!
This survey is
part of a broad study sponsored by the National Cancer Institute.
