“i do not expect my child’s respect.
just because i have given birth to their life.

from the moment we first met.
they love me for it.”
― Nayyirah Waheed

Under what rock was I hiding all this time that I have never heard of Common Sense Media? I told my friends that I made the mistake of showing my kids a movie the other day that I thought was perfectly fine for their age. It wasn’t. Ops!
