Common Sense Media

Looking for advice on whether a book, movie, game, or website is appropriate for your child or teen? Confused by rating systems? One of my favorite resources for information about these topics is Common Sense Media. One thing I really like about this site is that it suggests ways to explore, discuss, and understand media, even if there are elements that are not squeaky clean. It’s a great resource, enjoy!
