Dear PS 101 Families,
Once in a while we come across a TV show that becomes very popular and is not appropriate for young children. One of most popular shows right now on Netflix is Squid Games. Having watched this myself, I can tell you it is not appropriate for young children to watch, even if you are watching it with them as it focuses on violence and is very graphic. While ultimately it is up to you to decide how to parent your child, and what you choose to allow them to see, the concern is that there are no behaviors being “copied” from the show by your child.
We are hearing students talk about this show in the school and if your child has seen it or wants to see it, then I highly suggest you as their parent have a discussion about it with a specific focus on not copying any of the behaviors or language used in the show.
