Our Ten Beliefs
Our 10 Beliefs
- We believe in media sanity, not censorship.
- We believe that media has become "the other parent" in our kids' lives, powerfully affecting their social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development.
- We believe in teaching our kids to be savvy, respectful, and responsible media users. We can’t cover their eyes, but we can teach them to see.

- We believe in diversity of programming and media ownership.
