1. Any character consuming alcohol OR any form of alcohol present in the frame

2. Any character smoking or vaping

3. Any profanity of any kind

4. Extreme or excessive anger

5. Any violence. Includes but is not limited to:

  • Blood in a scene
  • Guns, explosives, or any weapons
  • A person attacking another person or animal
  • Scenes involving the army or military combat/experiences

6. Any nudity or slight nudity. This includes a woman with nearly exposed (does not have to be fully exposed) body parts that are not appropriate for child viewing

7. Any sexually-related behavior. Includes but is not limited to:
