Common Sense Media

Hello friends and families of PWG!

We know that technology is a big part of each family’s daily life. Many of us seek realistic ways to manage media and devices at home.

To promote healthy media habits at every age and stage, we’re launching Common Sense Media’s Family Media Toolkit (developed with the American Academy of Pediatrics)–Resources here! You’ll find tips for screen time and age-appropriate content that reflect today’s fast-changing reality. Let us know if you find it helpful.
