For as long as I’ve had kids, I’ve used Common Sense Media to help find age appropriate entertainment about them. I was thrilled to hear about their new app, and I’ve invited Tammy Rader from AT&T to share more with you about this great app and its uses. Common Sense Media is a valuable parenting tool, and I encourage you to take advantage! Thank you Tammy for guest posting today!

No holiday season would be complete without the joy of finding the perfect gifts for your loved ones, enjoying family movie nights or traveling to grandma’s house with the ultimate holiday music playlist. Whether your family is thinking about taking in a new movie or plotting a shopping extravaganza, AT&T wants to make your holidays a little easier, and a lot more fun, with tips for choosing family-friendly holiday gifts & activities.
With the free Common Sense Media app, you can keep holiday activities and gifts family-friendly at all times. Download the app using your smartphone and find age-appropriate media activities, complete with expert reviews, ratings and recommendations – tailored to the age of your child – on thousands of movies, music and more.
Did someone say movie night?
Break out the popcorn and gather around for family movie night. With the tap of your finger, use the Common Sense app to find age-appropriate movies for your tot or teen and all ages in between! The app even provides alternate options to less-than-preferred choices.
Time for a dance-off!
Get the kiddos off the couch and start shaking all about. Dance competition video games are a hot gift this holiday season. While browsing the video game aisle, use your smartphone’s Common Sense app to see which games are appropriate. Utilize the “What Parents Need to Know” section to get an at-a-glance review or see what other parents have to say by tapping the “Members Say” button.
Snuggle up with a good book.
For your little bookworm, head over to the bookstore and pick out a story complete with princesses and fairy tales. Plug in the age of your dreamer and the Common Sense app will provide many age-appropriate options, which can be sorted by genre.
Why stop with the Common Sense app? Your smartphone has access to thousands of apps that can lead to great family, holiday fun.
