I don’t know about you, but I am always struggling in my attempts to decide what is age appropriate for my kids. Always searching for a barometer to help me make decisions. Do I say “yes” or “no”? My “go to” website has become Common Sense Media. Whether it is a tv show that my 8 yr old wants to watch or a movie for a teenager, Common Sense Media gives a recommended age and criteria for its decision. They even give ratings for books! It is immensely helpful in maneuvering the world of entertainment and books for my kids. There is also space for comments from other parents with their feedback about the particular show or movie. I always check Common Sense Media before any slumber party to make sure that my decision for a movie is appropriate and also so I can see if there are any plot lines that I will need to watch for and explain. In this world of so much information, it is comforting that there is a website specific to the needs of parents who want to make sure that are kids aren’t exposed to things that they shouldn’t be. Check it out and breathe easier!
