Where to Go to Be in The Know

As parents, we are faced with lots of decisions. Decisions that will affect our children and our relationships with them. Every day our children are exposed to a vast amount of media and we, as the parents, are faced with making decisions about the media with which our children will interact. Every parent wants what is best for their child, but getting a straight answer about games, movies, apps, books, and music can be hard. That is where Common Sense Media can help.


Common Sense Media is an organization that stringently weighs the pros and cons of a vast array of media. Throughout the site, you will find user information on media as well as expert advice. The home page offers a quick glance at the most popular movies in theaters and on DVD, giving an instant green check if it is Common Sense Media Approved and an average age recommendation.


Through tools such as the family guide, parent concerns, top picks, and reviews, you can find out if any piece of media is appropriate for your family. Take a look at the picture gallery below to see some of the great places you can visit on commonsensemedia.org to get a picture of the full array of information you can find to make your search for the best digital experiences for your family easy and rewarding!
