Just like back then, kids these days often know more about electronics and media than we do. They jump right into new experiences and move from one app to another quickly and easily.
A parents job, and a challenging job it is, is to weed through the piles of media and find the things that are right for our kids. What will challenge their minds and encourage their curiosity? What is appropriate for their age and maturity and what should you help them avoid.
My favorite media information site, Common Sense Media has put out a Common Sense Gift guide for the Holiday Season. Be sure to check out their recommendations and read the reviews. You'll get enough details to make an informed choice about media gifts for your kids.
And, don't forget to check out common sense media for reviews and recommendations for all those new movies before you go see them with your children.
