Thanks for bringing this movie to my awareness JanaBanana.

I got in on this late so some of you have said it better than me, but here's my two cents. Just because you can't "shield" your kids from everything is not a good reason to not "shield" your kids from whatever you can whenever you can. I know some here don't believe in the Bible, but surely you can appreciate the wisdom in some of it's teachings. There is a Proverb that says, "Train up your children in the way they should go, and when they are old they will not depart from it." The key, and where so much of our world today is missing it, is teach them how they should go, not expose them to every kind of crap in the world and let them make up their own little minds at a time when they are not emotionally ready, mentally ready, or mature enough to know what is the best course.
I was not raised this way and I was a mess for years. The one good thing I can say about my loose upbringing is that it has given me an absolute determination to not make that same mistake with my kids. Yes, it makes them be different than many of their peers, but look around you in this world. It's easy to be like everyone else around you just to fit in. Nothing worth having is ever obtained by taking the easy path that is more heavily travelled.
Sorry if I seem preachy, but it's a very emotional issue for me. The way to destroy a culture is to rob childhood from the kids and that's exactly what is happening here in America.

it saddens me the way this country (england) seems to be going with its youth. we are starting to get "gang culture" now and it really gets me down. i do believe in 90% of the cases it is the parents fault.

i have a half brother (my dad's son) and i have to be honest, his mother is a waste of space. she has no rules and regulations, she lets him play violent video games and her language is appalling. she and my dad are no longer together and i am so grateful that my dad has shared custody (although my dad has him alot more than his mum does) i believe if he were in her full time care he would be a terrible child. my dad is no saint by any stretch of the imagination, but he is a decent father. he takes no back chat, he expects his kids to treat others as they would want to be treated, he has strict bedtime rules, and he makes sure that child speaks properley and with curtesy. thankfully, he is a wonderful 9 year old child, and is so respectful. i think he will do very well in life.

I think that´s how it goes on pretty much everywhere....We have big problems with the young kids as well....And I agree...somehow....kids are seen as little grown ups...when they are not...they are kids.....parents seem to be so eager for the kids to be grown up they forget the magic that childhood brings

YOU said it best! I too was raised very loosely and I swore I would do better by my own children. Even as a child I knew it was wrong.
Thank you

I will hide from the snowballs that may be tossed my way as I say that I enjoyed this movie. I really thought it was cute and I love Melissa Joan Hart so that added to my overall impression of the movie, I'm sure. Of course, I understand that my filters for movies are different than many of you because I don't have children in my home full time so I only have to work within my own personal comfort level.

I never watched this movie but, I had already determined that I wouldn't like it because of the title. That's just how I am, if I don't like the title it's pretty hard for me to give it a try. I basically don't think that any of the movies on ABCFamily are any good and I don't like their 25 day of Christmas line up either. They only show 1 or 2 things that I can stand to watch. Other than that it's just crap.

Yep you may feel differently if you had young sponges in your home full-time. Its really not a childrens show.. but then I really have to scratch my head at some parents way of thinking when it comes to letting their children watch these type of shows. I think Storeytime said it best.
Some parents dont filter anything.
