How We Determine Our Grades

After watching a movie with your children or students, we encourage parents and teachers to look for education opportunities to teach with movies. Here are a few discussion topics that can help with lesson plans or teaching in the home.

Finding good childcare is a concern for many working parents. What things are essential for you in a daycare setting? Would you hire a male caregiver? What different approaches between male and female caregivers would you consider to be advantageous for your child?

Considering the role they play in raising many of the next generation, are daycare workers adequately trained, experienced and appreciated in our society? While standards of cleanliness, programming and safety measures can be mandated, can love and acceptance of a child by caregivers be enforced?

If ages 2 0x2013 6 are key branding years for advertisers, what aggressive marketing promos are your children exposed to? Do ads influence the kind of products your children want or that you buy for them?

A scene depicts a child drinking soap solution and then blowing bubbles from his mouth. Parents may want to discuss with their children the potential dangers of mimicking this behavior, and point out the use of computer generated special effects that were used to create this illusion.
