Kids and Media is a non-profit, charitable organisation which gives information and advice about children´s use of digital media.
Our vision is to see children and teenagers using media with safety and awareness.
Our aim is to help children and adolescents to enjoy their media content in a safe way.
Our main target group is parents. We wish to help parents to guide and guard their children in a digital world, different from the media world they themselves experienced as children. Kids and Media seek to support, equip and empower parents and professionals who work with children and teenagers.
KidsandMedia works to the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, which emphasizes children´s rights to use the media and their rights to protection from information that could be harmful.
We want to help parents to actively participate in their children´s media consumption by giving them useful information, advice and tools. The KidsandMedia website includes up to date reviews of the latest computer games, films and mobile apps with advice for parents on how to choose suitable media for children of all ages and how to get involved with their children´s media use. It is also a resource for teachers and other professionals who work with children and youth.
The organisation was founded in Norway year 2000. Kids and Media Norway has a network of speakers all over the country who offer courses for parents, schools and professionals. The board of editors for www.kidsandmedia.co.uk is based in Norway and collaborates with organisations and institutions both in the UK and EU and now has websites in several European countries. The UK operation is run by child safety experts, KidsOKOnline.
Robert Hart-Fletcher is the head of KidsandMedia UK.
