How do you go about choosing media for your children?
Do you know how to determine when your child is ready for a particular movie? Or even a book?
Superheroes and Star Wars are very popular with young kids, but when is it okay to show them these films? Should you, as a parent, see the movie first?
What if you could go to a website where you can vet a film for violence?
One such website is Common Sense Media. Common Sense Media is dedicated to improving the lives of kids and families by providing the trustworthy information, education, and an independent voice they need to thrive in a world of media and technology.
This type of service is highly valuable, as our nation's children spend more time with media and digital activities than they do with their families or in school. Such an investment in these activities profoundly impacts their social, emotional, and physical development.
Dr. David Hill discusses the need for websites like this, as well as ways you can make sure your child has access to appropriate content.
