While the spring season is slowly rolling out warmer weather and flowers, Hollywood has been rolling out the red carpet for awards season!

All the celebrities and influencers have been showing up in force to celebrate music, movies, and politics.

Your kids might not have stayed up late to sit through the hours of rude jokes, political statements, and the actual awards, but they still listen and watch.

Even though your family may have rules about music and movies within the home, outside the home, there is a culture being influenced by popular entertainment.
