A young boy puts his foot on a fish, though it's not meant to be abusive.

A young girl intentionally drops a goldfish in a bag of water on the ground, but picks it up again and the fish appears to be fine.

An adult woman reads a poem she wrote in a sensual way that alludes to a sexual encounter and it makes some characters react with approval and others with discomfort, including a young girl who is in the room.

There's mention of the "sexual revolution" and "women's lib" and that women no longer wear bras.

It's not specifically said to be Alzheimer's, but an elderly female character's behavior seems to be modeled after someone with dementia-like symptoms (catatonia, wandering, delirium). It's mentioned by a character that "her mind's been wandering more and more".

No gore, but there is a very small amount of blood. A young female character cuts her finger on a fish hook and then encourages a young male character to pick a mosquito bite. The girl then rubs her bloody finger on the boy's arm so the blood mixes and declares that they are blood brothers for life.
