Today we launched our new Parents' Place webpage filled with resources and information about television, electronic media and online safety. We also link to other sites with great information for parents. For just one example, click on the link to Net Cetera for practical tips for talking to your children about being online.

We have three categories of online resources:

Want to find television programs for your kids? Type in your zip code to find local broadcast instructional and educational programs in your area. We also have a link to PBS - so you can find the local times of your child's favorite PBS show.

We encourage parents to share their practical ideas and insights related to children and communications. So the website provides a forum for parents and caregivers to share practical ideas about online safety, safe driving and blocking inappropriate content. Let us know if there are other topics you would like us to add to the discussion list.

If you want to dig deeper, take a look at the FCC's National Broadband Plan, especially the chapter on education. And make sure to check out the video of Chairman Genachowski talking with Elmo about the importance of high-speed internet access. Elmo wants the Internet to be fast, fast, fast!
