I Don't Know How She Does It! WONDERFUL MOVIE

I honestly think "I Don't Know How She Does It" is a wonderful movie! From my review I would say children and young teens would be bored from this movie. But overall it is a wonderful movie!

Watch, then ask your teens how they feel about working moms.

For mid-teens and up, this movie has some strong starting points for conversation about family, working moms and sexual stereotypes. Is Kate, the mom in the movie, a good mom? What do kids think of working moms? Does this make them want to work outside the home? And I love the teen reviewer's comment do they feel about her flirtation with her male co-worker? I am hoping to get my 14-year-old-daughter to watch...she follows fashion and thus is already a Sarah Jessica Parker fan. I think many teenage girls may also have formed some opinions about the work/mom balance just by watching their own moms and may be more interested in the movie than most adults would think. I'd love it if teen boys would give these issues a think, but that may be hoping for too much. That's a shame, because these are really important issues for every family that normally get no consideration at all in the movies.
