I had so much fun chatting with Josh Gilman at Strength to Fight. Check out the full interview here:
In case you’re interested, here are some links to resources we mentioned in the interview:
Petra’s Power to See: A Media Literacy Adventure (from Educate and Empower Kids). Join Petra and her dad as they venture into the city to learn about the media messages all around us. We are surrounded by messages (media) our entire lives—most of the are beautiful! Some inspire us to learn and grow, but some messages are empty and unhealthy. Petra and her dad come face to face with clear and hidden messages in different media such as advertising, social media, movies, and fake news. They'll teach you about media literacy by helping you learn to deconstruct these messages together! Helpful Features for Parents and Teachers include: • Thoughtful conversation starters • Engaging workbook questions • Simple activities to enjoy
Good Pictures Bad Pictures (from Protect Young Minds). Good Pictures Bad Pictures is a comfortable, read-aloud story about a mom and dad who teach their child what pornography is, why it's dangerous, and how to reject it. Using easy-to-understand science and simple analogies, this ground-breaking book engages young kids to porn-proof their own brains. The 5-point CAN DO Plan teaches kids how to avoid the brain-warping images of pornography and minimize the troubling memories of accidental exposure that often tempt kids to look for more and lead them into a dark and destructive addiction. To stay safe in the digital age, kids must install an internal filter in their own brain. Good Pictures Bad Pictures shows them how.
