She does not want a 10 year old watch PG 13. What is your issue with that?

Apparently the double standard ... The Hunger Games is PG-13.

And if The Nanny were rated on a movie scale, it would probably be a PG. But honestly, I don't see getting worked up over a mediocre 90's sitcom.

We need more info. Why is she making the distinction between those particular movies/TV shows and what exactly irritates you about it?

Mediocre? No way, it was horrendous. I wouldn't let anyone watch it based on quality, alone.

LOL. My nephew and his wife would not allow their daughter to watch any of the Harry Potter movies because it depicted witches and warlocks. They are religious and felt it was against God. But they not only let her watch the Twilight movies her mother took her to some shindig to meet the actors. I don't understand it.

When I was a kid, my friend told me his father wouldn't let him watch The Partners, a police sitcom starring Don Adams (from Get Smart) because it was "too violent". I was like, "Whhhaaaat...?"

I'm guessing the OP means the movie "The Nanny Diaries" but who knows? Not that it matters.

PG-13 means parents decide, based upon their own values and their knowledge of their children sensibilities and maturity, which movies in that category are and are not suitable for their children. That's not a double standard.
