Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Eloise in Springtime's upbeat message of the importance of love is overshadowed by child and adult characters lying to get what they want. There are repercussions and apologies, but neither Eloise nor her temporary babysitter make good role models for children. Eloise's mother in Paris won't come home to care for her, even when Nanny is going on vacation.
A romantic kiss between an adult couple.
Both Eloise and her babysitter purposely mislead other characters to get what they want, causing sadness and inconvenience. Apologies are made and lessons learned, but lying comes very naturally to both characters. Eloise is extremely disrespectful to an admittedly uptight tutor. Even when beloved Nanny takes a short vacation, Eloise's mother hires another sitter rather than taking care of her daughter herself.
