About This Effort

How and when children watch television is a decision each parent needs to make for his or her family. While some parents discourage TV viewing, others welcome the entertainment and educational benefits that TV has to offer. For these parents, it is important that they have the tools to foster responsible TV viewing practices for their family.

The TV and movie industries created this website to give parents the tools and information they need to guide their child's television consumption. We want to help parents create a television plan that works for the entire family. From identifying age-appropriate programming to using parental controls and teaching media literacy, parents can make television a beneficial part of their entire family's life.
