A "pet caterpillar" which they had for 2 hours is accidentally suffocated by two young girls. They don't seem too attached to it though

In my own opinion, what happens is basic sibling fighting. There is nothing I would say that qualifies as physically abusive behavior.

No, but mother-daughter relationship is at times very tense/argumentative/bitter. Older brother is somewhat parentified by the mother who relies on him emotionally.

Someone meets up with a guy for a date and they park in an empty parking lot. They start making out, and the guy presses her down and proceeds to pull down her underwear (nothing is shown) before beginning to undo his own pants. The girl yells at him and pushes him off, and he does not continue sexual activity. After some awkward exchanging of words, they kiss again, the guy tried to slide his hand up her thigh, and the girl pushes his hand away. *No intercourse occurred* between the girl and the guy, and she was not raped, but the guy did actively behave in a sexual manner without her consent and made her uncomfortable.

A 17 girl puts herself in situations in which she is sexualized (sexting a guy, telling a guy "let's have sex").
The movie depicts her as an awkward, clumsy girl, and the camera does not sexualize her.

I used this website to see if there was throw up, so I was looking out for the bathroom scene to avoid seeing it, but be warned, the scene where she is walking up the stairs drunk in the beginning of the movie IMMEDIATELY cuts to visible throw up, so you will see it if you continue watching after she walks up the stairs

A teenaged girl, to her teacher. She describes her plan in some detail, but although she seems serious, we can tell from context that she doesn't really mean it.

The main character pushes off a boy who behaves inappropriately in a car— no sex occurs after on or off screen during the scene.

In the beginning of the movie, there is a scene where there is a boy and a girl ‘the morning after’ while in the bed.

Plenty of sexual talk, innuendos, gestures, and jokes.

[Shes drunk when this happens]Her brothers friends are in their pool and she wants them gone so she says she's gonna call the cops and when she fake dials she says " my brother is hurting me in my no no hole" as a 'joke'. She isn't being serious but I figure I should mention it because it messed me up for a minute
