Families and teachers everywhere trust Common Sense for expert reviews, objective advice, helpful tools, and so much more.
Your trusted guide for a fast-changing world. Media and technology are at the center of kids' lives every day. From a very young age, kids use technology at home and at school to connect with friends and family and to document their lives and create digital content of their own. With more and more of life happening online, what catches kids' attention isn't always what's best for them, and what companies do with their personal information isn't always clear.
