Parent Resources

As part of our continued commitment to bring responsibility to the entertainment industry, we'd like to provide parents with some practical advice on how to set limitations on children's access to television, how to talk with your children about what they view, and how to set a good example for your children with your own viewing habits. Below is a collection of advice, articles, quizes and checklists from trusted sources. We hope this compilation makes it easier for you to get the information you need to keep your child safe.
