It's not always easy for kids to talk to their parents (and vice-versa), but it's important to keep the lines of communication open so the relationship weathers the bumps. Also, it takes a village to raise a child, and every villager has something to contribute.
Positive Role Models & Representations
A boy is picked on at school and beaten up. Teens paint homophobic slurs on a classmate's car. A woman throws furniture around in a fit of anger. Yelling.
Couples are shown starting to undress as they get ready to be intimate; a bare back is seen, for example, but there's no graphic nudity. Many frank conversations about sex among both teens and adults. Some discussions about a young woman's experience sleeping with teenage boys and an older man's experience seducing women.
Language includes "f--k," "d--k," "hell," "s--t," and more.
Ease of Play
One character smokes like a chimney -- she's almost always seen with a cigarette, and the possibility of getting cancer from smoking is discussed openly. Teens also light up; one teen smokes from a bong. Teens also drink, as do adults, sometimes to excess. Characters are shown driving right after drinking. Discussions about weed.
