No Shade of Grey - Better for your Children

There has been a lot of media attention given to the upcoming movie 50 Shades of Grey. The movie is being promoted as a love story; ultimately it is anything but a love story. Many experts fear the impact it will have on those who see it, in particular young people. Even those who are too young to see the movie will still be able to watch trailers and hear the media hype and will not be left unaffected by its negative impact.

Help your children form a healthy knowledge of human sexuality; do not ignore the impact this movie could have on your child. Attached are two excellent pieces written by Miriam Grossman, M.D., a child and adolescent psychiatrist (miriamgrossmanmd.com) that can help you and your child learn more about why 50 Shades of Grey is not the true love story it is trying to portray.
