Teachers, parents, and policymakers struggle keeping up with the digital world that changes so rapidly. The fact is, it is the digital world where today’s children learn and live. They need guidance to navigate a constantly changing world.

Families need to make media choices that are smart. They need a reliable source of age ranked and rated games, movies, apps, websites, television shows, music, and books.

We need to teach our kids to be respectful, to be savvy and be responsible media users. We cannot cover our children’s eyes but we must teach them, teach them vision.
