Isn’t it so hard to find a decent movie to watch with your tweens?!
Finding a movie to watch with your tween boys or girls, that’s not all fart jokes, insults your intelligence, or leaves you wondering what the world’s coming to is really hard!
When my kids were tweens, fun family movie night turned into a family feud night.
And with kids of different ages you can just forget it!
(Of course my youngest at the time would get very excited at the prospect of watching a movie that her older siblings were suggesting).
I would protest and occasionally surrender, thinking, it can’t be that bad. Can you say denial?
Of course then I’d spend the next several hours grabbing my youngest and covering her eyes or singing, “La.. La.. La” so she couldn’t hear, and if she did there’d be an in movie lecture, “Don’t repeat ‘those’ words!” or cover ups, “They’re married!”
Here at MOTTS we decided to reclaim family movie night by coming up with a list to keep the whole family happy and entertained, no matter what the age.
Each movie has been chosen and “Mother Approved” with the help of Common Sense Media and Plugged In (each are great resources to use when you want to look up a movie and find out more about the subject matter, storyline and ratings).

Hi. I’m Sheryl.
Welcome to my heart, my story, and my love for Moms of Tweens and Teens.
My passion and mission for MOTTS was born out of my personal journey – a journey that took me from a place of being fearful to show others the real me, to a place of slowly opening my heart to being authentic; a place of shame wanting to hide my challenges and struggles to experiencing the grace and love of being known and accepted; a place of not knowing what to do, to a place of experiencing the healing, wisdom, and transformation that comes from being a part of a community of women who are willing to share their hearts and allow themselves to be seen and known.
