Common Sense Technology for kids

Just a quick post as a follow up to my What Our Babies Will Never Know post the other day. Someone posted an amazing website Facebook and I felt the need to share it with my readers. It is called Common Sense Media. It's targeted for parents with 2 year olds and up. Even for moms like me with 8 month olds... it at least gets me reading on what to do as Julianna gets older and how to introduce technology to her safely & the right way.

Here is their blurb on why they exist:
Common Sense Media is dedicated to improving the lives of kids and families by providing the trustworthy information, education, and independent voice they need to thrive in a world of media and technology.

We exist because our nation's children spend more time with media and digital activities than they do with their families or in school, which profoundly impacts their social, emotional, and physical development . As a non-partisan, not-for-profit organization, we provide trustworthy information and tools, as well as an independent forum, so that families can have a choice and a voice about the media they consume.

Sounds good to me - Anyone with children should be checking out the Common Sense Media website. They have some great recommendations and advice regarding children and today's technology, movie ratings, TV shows, Books, Website ratings, and so forth.

This is the only technology Julianna knows or cares about right now.


  1. Thank you for posting this information - I will be posting - Testing the Limits or something like that - for parents in how to limit the bloodsucking elements of technology has presented to our children. I am still researching so it may take some time. Anyway, the photo is adorable, but I heard something about a wet, gooey cell phone that may have been used as a teether - you wouldn't happen to know of anyone would you? Admit it your daughter is in to the cell phone too, LOL.

    Have a great day

  2. Haha Yes she broke my darned BB Curve. She drooled so much the keys stopped working on the left side especially the ALT key which if you know BB's, you need it for everything. It's ok, I was due for an upgrade anyhow and it made me upgrade to my *beloved* BB Torch. She did me a favor. lol. She will no longer be allowed near anyone's phone! :)

  3. Lol...our daughter chewed a couple phones to death too...we're trying to keep the phones away from Harry and it's a challenge!

    I looked at that site--what a great resource! I was amazed by all the opinions they have available about movies...I discovered I'm pretty (okay, extremely!) conservative when it comes to showing my kids movies!



Thank You for taking the time to stop by.
