Today my 9 year old and I sat down to find an appropriate movie for him to download for our upcoming trip. We headed to Common Sense Media because it is tough to determine what shows are acceptable for him AND that he will enjoy. I was amazed. I was able to search for movies, then his age, and up popped a list of options. Not only do they have a great list, but the list includes trailers, Common Sense Media’s take on the show, and a rating of appropriateness. Just what we needed!
Want the scoop on age appropriate movies? Head to www.commonsensemedia.org and click on “Reviews” in the left corner.
Add your criteria such as age, genre, etc…
And you get some great suggestions with detail on what you are watching, what is good about the movie, what to watch out for, and what you may want to discuss with your child after or before watching the movie. Common Sense Media is opinionated! I like it!
I am so thankful that we have Common Sense Media to help us make tough decisions about movie watching!
