My daughter is 12 years old and she went to a rated R movie with her friends! I herd you need to be 17 years old to see a rated R movie! And now she is cussing and always getting in trouble at school i blame that movie she saw last week. What should i do?

Stop blaming a movie and start addressing your daughter's behavior. I'm sorry, but at 12.... no movie is going to do a 180 on a person's language and behavior.

My kids hear cussing on a daily basis from just about every single person (from toddler to adult) in our neighborhood, but they sure don't repeat any of that stuff.

Does her school have a guidance counselor? Start looking for the root of the problem and that will probably help you as how to address the issues best.

I'm certainly not advocating that she can see R rated movies. I would be upset about that and she wouldn't be going out 'alone' for quite a while, but if you just blame the movie without looking for the real causes of her behavior.... nothing is going to be accomplished here.

Good luck!!
