Things are very busy these days as I’ve been promoting my new Real Food for Rookies Class, but I wanted to share with you a great resource that I often tap into as a parent: Plugged In Online. That’s the first place I go when wondering if a video, movie, video game, TV show or music is “OK” for the kids.

I love their search box, because it only takes me a few seconds to know what I need to know before letting them watch, listen or play.
A few years ago Kal wanted to play “Grand Theft Auto” at a friend’s house. He wasn’t happy when I pulled up this site that quickly convinced me NOT to let him play. I found out that a few levels into it are some really terrible ways to earn extra points. One especially offensive way to earn more and move up levels is if you rape a girl. Yeah, NOT what I was going to let my pre-teen boy be exposed to.
