• Common Sense Media

    A must-check site for parents, Common Sense Media is a one-stop shop for all things media related.  According to their website, "Common Sense is the nation’s leading independent non-profit organization dedicated to empowering kids to thrive in a world of media and technology. Families, educators, and policymakers turn to Common Sense for unbiased information and trusted advice to help them learn how to harness the positive power of media and technology for all kids."

    I use this site frequently for my own children, to research movies, TV shows, apps, books, websites, and games that are age- and content-appropriate for their interests and needs.  I highly recommend signing up for their email newsletter--it is the one newsletter I truly find worthwhile!

  • Download the Common Sense Media app and have on-the-go access to recommendations and reviews of movies, apps, games, TV shows, books, websites, and music, all customizable for your kids.

    Available from on the App Store and on Google Play.
