Segment 4 – Entertainment Trends from 2020 that are of Concern to Families

“As children are increasingly living their lives in front of screens, they are more vulnerable to being exposed to explicit content that Hollywood and others are marketing to them. Furthermore, there is a growing wave of adult-targeted content that features children – sometimes as young as 9 – in sexually-explicit, sexually-exploitative, situations.” Tim Winter explains.
