How to Find Good Movies, Books, Apps and More

As a parent, it is often a challenge to know if a movie, website, book, song, or app is appropriate for our children at their specific age.  And how do we talk to them about things like Facebook?  We discuss what we find useful to help us choose for our children.   One resource we discuss is Common Sense Media.  Others include Squeaky Clean Reads and Good Reads if you have friends you trust who have posted books in their list.

  1. One resource I have really come to trust over the years is screenit.com Their website isn’t the friendliest to navigate, but their content is very solid. I like how they break down all the things in the movie that might be questionable, and let me decide if it is appropriate for my kids. They are very good at providing the information I need.

    I also have found their take on whether or not the movie is worth watching to very closely match my own expectations.

    They don’t do books though….
