Our editors are a group of writers and media professionals with years of experience as both journalists and parents. We love media, and we love kids. We have degrees in subjects such as journalism and media studies and have worked for book publishers (William Morrow, Avon, Addison-Wesley, Prentice Hall, Bantam Books) and both online and offline publications (BabyCenter.com, USA Today, Netflix, AOL, Computer Life, CNet.com, and more). Many of us are known as trusted voices in our areas of expertise in every corner of the media, academic, and parenting worlds. We've worked as reviewers for publications such as Entertainment Weekly, AOL, Publishers Weekly, Library Journal, USA Today, and more. Some of us are teachers, librarians, and experienced academics who've studied the impact of media at length. All of us are devoted to giving families the age-appropriate information they need to pick the movies, TV shows, books, games, apps, and websites their kids will enjoy. And all are passionate about both media and Common Sense's "sanity, not censorship" approach to providing information.
Common Sense Kids Action's team of policy staff and advisors have years of political and advocacy experience working on electoral campaigns, in government offices, and in nonprofit organizations.
