Educating Tweens and Teens on Pop Culture: The Movies I INSIST My Kids See


The Breakfast Club (1985)

Here's Why: This movie introduces the construct of human archetypes, with whom your kids will deal (or be) for the greater part of their lives. Also, that crappy circumstances can make friends of even the most bitter enemies. Also, that people can put their differences aside, if only they stop to listen to each other. And, finally, they can see what the inside of a high school library looks like before they all disappear.
