On average, kids spend more time using electronic media than they do with parents or in school. While teens and tweens gravitate to YouTube, MySpace, iPods, Instant Messages, and text messages, their younger siblings are already adept consumers of video games, TV shows, and DVDs. Media has truly become the "Other Parent" in our children's lives.

Children are quick to learn how to access multiple forms of media for entertainment, information, and communication, but they still need guidance on how to use media wisely. Common sense parenting skills can help kids become active and critical consumers of the media messages they see, hear, and read every day.

This workshop was developed by Common Sense Media, a non-profit, non-partisan organization dedicated to improving kids' media lives. It is designed to give parents, educators, and community leaders the information and tools necessary to understand the impact of media on children's development, and to raise a generation of media savvy kids.

This event is sponsored by the Windrush Parent Association. It is offered free of charge and is open to the general public. (The workshop is designed for adults; please do not bring children, though babes in arms are welcome.)

An RSVP is not necessary, but appreciated: email connect [at] windrush.org
