Common Sense Media is dedicated to improving the media and entertainment lives of kids and families.   Media is fun and our kids love it. We also know that kids now spend so much time absorbing its messages and images that it has become "the other parent" in their lives. We started this organization because we know families need trustworthy information to help manage their kids' media lives. We're posting our beliefs here so that all our users can know the underlying principles that guide our philosophy and mission.

 

Kids Live Safe

 

The Parents Television Council was founded in 1995 to ensure that children are not constantly assaulted by sex, violence and profanity on television and in other media. The Parent's Television Council is a national grassroots organization with nearly one-million members across the United States, and works with television producers, broadcasters, networks and sponsors in an effort to stem the flow of harmful and negative messages targeted to children. They are a nonpartisan organization that works with elected and appointed government officials to enforce broadcast decency standards.

 

 

"Fighting the belief that our children are in constant danger from creeps, kidnapping, germs, grades, flashers, frustration, failure, baby snatchers, bugs, bullies, men, sleepovers and/or the perils of a non-organic grape." - Free Range Kids

Our competitions and games are designed for learners of English as a foreign or second language normally resident in a non English speaking country outside the United Kingdom. We ask those who speak English as their first language not to enter these competitions, and will not consider entries that we believe are from such individuals for prizes.

"Public health is only effective if the public can actually access and discern what information is reliable.  But given how much information and how many ‘sources’ are out there, how can you decide who’s the authority?  That’s where we come in.  Our goal is to provide a hub of reputable and useful public information on health topics.  We apply library science and technical know-how to the public health sector to identify quality authorities as well as to track news and developments, and then we organize it into handy references made available on this site." - PublicHealthCorps

"EducatorLabs is comprised of school librarians and media/market research specialists who work as curators and conservators of the scholastic web. In previous decades, our resource collections were finite and we knew our card catalog backwards and forwards; nowadays, modern technology provides us with a seemingly infinite inventory of educational resources. Unfortunately, there simply are no comprehensive card catalogs for the internet and, sadly, many untapped resources go undiscovered by most teachers." - EducatorLabs

"Geography is important for students to learn, starting at a young age, because it provides them with perspective on diversity—that nations and people differ yet have similarities.  It’s also one of the most engaging subjects for students, as there are many interactive lessons and resources for teachers to utilize and apply in their classrooms. From having students name and locate all of the state capital cities on a map to learning about a foreign nation’s political system, geography can be made fun and engaging for students." - Norwich University Online
