Common Sense and the American Academy of Pediatrics are teaming up to promote healthy media habits at every age and stage.

Technology is a big part of families' daily lives, and parents are looking for realistic ways to manage media and devices at home. That's why we have developed new recommendations for screen time and age-appropriate content that reflect today's fast-changing reality. Now, we're bringing those recommendations to pediatricians, research partners, and families everywhere with the Family Media Toolkit. As part of our nationwide pilot program, you are invited to use these free resources in English and Spanish.

Deliver recommendations directly to families:

  • Review the resources to find the right materials for your patients.
  • Display up-to-date materials in your office or waiting room.
  • Help families make a media plan that works for them.
