Tech the Halls #13: Common Sense for Parents


One of my favorite resources as a parent is Common Sense Media. (It is also an amazing resource for educators, but we'll save that for a future post.) Today's "Tech the Halls" tech tip is to share tips for using Common Sense Media, as well as direct you to their wonderful Holiday Gift Guide for 2014.

Tech the Halls: Common Sense for Parents

Tech the Halls with this great resource, fa la la la la, la la la la, la la la la. 
Referencing this site is par for the course, fa la la la la, la la la la, la la la la.

Use it to look up movie reviews, fa la la, la la la, la la la. 
Divided into categories you can use, fa la la, la la la, la la la. 

Consider it before your child gets exposed to, fa la la la la, la la la la, la la la la.
Content and images only suitable for you, fa la la la la, la la la la, la la la la.

What parents need to know and age recommendations, fa la la la la, la la la la, la la la la.
These two sections get my appreciation, fa la la la la, la la la la, la la la la.


As a parent (or even a classroom teacher), have you ever had one of those moments you wish you could take back? Maybe allowed your child (or students) to watch a movie or TV show only to hear them reference it later, and then realize it probably wasn't the most appropriate show for your child?! Well have no fear, Common Sense Media is here! This is my go-to resource to look up a movie or TV show before giving my teenager permission to watch something new. The analysis by category (see image below) is extremely helpful. After reading a review I feel like I have enough information to make a sound parenting decision. *Read more about their Ratings System.* Another wonderful thing about this site: they not only review movies and TV shows, but games, books, apps, websites, and music too! And be sure to check out their Holiday Gift Guide for 2014 where you can find suggested media gifts broken down by age groups.
