Common Sense Media remains a standout in the world of children’s media. If you have not discovered it, you should. It offers high quality reviews and advice about children’s media and has probably the most extensive list you could imagine. Books, games, movies, TV, apps and more, this non-for-profit has professional and parent reviewers who provide guidance not just on the content, but on the learning and the values contained within the children’s media items they are reviewing. Combine that with a rating and comment section from readers (which often includes children’s own reviews and perspectives) and you have a strong and sound resource that can be relied upon and used across the globe to make good decisions about your child’s media consumption.
