Most families have screens in their home, which means a steady stream of movies, TV shows, games, apps, and more! How can parents know what content is or isn't appropriate for our children, when ratings are so broad and arbitrary? 

In today's interview with Prof. Elizabeth Handsley, President of CMA, we explore why it is so hard for parents to navigate the current classification system, and share some helpful resources and advice to minimise the risk that our children will be exposed to inappropriate content. 

In this episode:

  • Children and Media Australia - supporting children and families to thrive in the expanding world of screen media
  • Ratings and classifications
  • Movies, apps, games,
  • Inquiry into the Australian Classification Scheme
  • Aged-based and research-based information
  • Dose-response relationship to media
  • Children become desensitised to content
