About Common Sense Media
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.
Independent. Nonprofit. Research-backed.
Since 2003, Common Sense has been the leading source of entertainment and technology recommendations for families and schools. Every day, millions of parents and educators trust Common Sense reviews and advice to help them navigate the digital world with their kids. Together with policymakers, industry leaders, and global media partners, we're building a digital world that works better for all kids, their families, and their communities.
Healthy, happy kids—no matter what the future holds.
Our mission to ensure digital well-being for kids everywhere has never been more vital than it is today. See our story.
