Good if your teen is mature

Grand Army follows 5 teens throughout everyday life and struggles. My teens (13 and 15) have both expressed how not only is it a pretty accurate portrayal of real life as a teenager but how they really liked that it showed real struggles teens face. That said, some of the content is mature (Joey is r*ped, sex is talked about casually, there's drinking and drugs) so if you're teen is very mature you should probably hold off on letting them watch it. Side note: I watched it with my teens at first (to know what it was) and it was very awkward. My advice to you: Don't watch it with your child it'll only make you both uncomfortable!

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much swearing
