Common Sense Media

Kids today spend over 50 hours of screen time every week. The media content they consume and create has a profound impact on their social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development.  Learning how to use media and technology wisely is an essential skill for life and learning in the 21st century. Children's use of digital technology and lack of parental overview, intervention to educate is one of the biggest threats to a child's mental and sometimes physical well being.  There are 1000's of apps children use, many with the potential of creating a safeguarding concern and making a child vulnerable online.

They offer the largest, most trusted library of independent age-based and educational ratings and reviews for movies, games, apps, TV shows, websites, books, and music. Their Parent Concerns and Parent Blog help families understand and navigate the problems and possibilities of raising children in the digital age.
