Why Is Nanny McPhee Rated PG?

After his children pretend to eat the baby, Mr. Brown discovers his youngest child covered with gravy and vegetables in a roasting pan. Later the children replace Mrs. Quickly’s lunch items with wormy sandwiches and frog egg tea. They destroy the house by painting the piano keys and trashing the kitchen. In addition to their destructive behavior, they are also disobedient and rude. At the funeral home, Mr. Brown address dead bodies, which are shown lying on a table. While attempting to thwart his children’s pranks, Mr. Brown inadvertently falls on top of Mrs. Quickly and places his head on her bosom, which actions are mistaken as seeking for sexual favors.
