Is 'Squid Game' on Netflix appropriate for kids to watch?

It is indeed official: "Squid Game" become Netflix's largest series launch ever, but with all the buzz around the program, parents are asking if it's appropriate for their children to watch.

"Squid Game" seems to be a Korean drama in which popular childhood activities are given a lethal twist in the quest for a top $38 million cash prize. As game contestants make a violent dash for the money, the nine-episode series leaves nothing to the imagination in terms of gore and violence.

The short answer is that "Squid Game" is not suitable for children under the age of seventeen.

What age demographic is 'Squid Game' suitable for?

Netflix's "Squid Game" has a TV-MA classification, which indicates it's only for mature viewers. TV-MA, according to TV Guidelines, denotes "Because this show is intended for adults, it may not be appropriate for children under the age of 17. This show may include crude obscene language, explicit sexual behavior, or violent violence, among other things." Several caregivers have more particular concerns, particularly when dealing with children who beg to watch violent shows.

How is 'Squid Game' unsuitable for children?

Allowing extreme violence, such as that portrayed in the Netflix series, might be overpowering, according to Knight, since our brains are not completely formed until we reach the age of 25. "Numerous respondents assume, 'My child can grasp and distinguish truth from fiction,'" Knight explained. "Children, on the other hand, do not have the ability to discriminate as well as we do. It's unreasonable for them to expect them to perform what an adult can do when we show them these images."
