Young children are exposed to more media and technology, and at earlier ages, than ever before. With a dizzying array of smartphones, tablets, e-readers, and on-demand services, today’s toddlers and preschoolers are the most media- and tech-saturated generation ever. Join us for a conversation about trends in young kids’ media habits, based on the findings of Common Sense’s latest research report, The Common Sense Census. Panelists will discuss the implications for children, families, and the community organizations serving them.

Common Sense is grateful for the generous support and underwriting that funded this research report:
