Common Sense Media: 6 Fresh Ways to Clean Up Your Kids' Media


Old think: TV is dumbing down your kids, and you should feel guilty about every second your kid spends zoning out in front of the tube.

New think: While screen time limits are important for every age, sometimes everyone needs the break that watching a show offers.

Our take: Find the good stuff. Between Netflix, on demand, Hulu, and other services, chances are good that you can find shows that represent your tastes, interests, and values. Take advantage of the wealth of programming to explore subject matter your kid is interested in, watch full seasons of shows, or introduce your kids to your old faves, like "The Cosby Show" or "Facts of Life." —Common Sense Media (Photo: iStock)
