Kids have a magical way of discovering new shows before you know it. Last week, my Kindergartener came home talking about Pokemon, The Green Lantern on Cartoon Network and the latest Avenger movie — ALL media outlets too old for him.
Did I check my crystal ball to know it was too old for him? Did I call my psychic? Am I just that smart? Well, yes. I am that smart… because I checked the new app from Common Sense, a non-profit organization.
