About the National Institute on Media and the Family
The National Institute on Media and the Family is a national resource for research, education and information about the impact of media on children and families. The Institute was created to provide information to parents and other adults about media products and their likely impact on children so they can make informed choices.

Our mission is to maximize the benefits and minimize the harm of media on children and families through research and education.

The Institute is a non-profit, non-partisan and non-sectarian organization. We do not advocate censorship of any kind. We are committed to partnering with parents and other caregivers, organizations and corporations in using the power of the free market to create a healthier media diet for families, so that we have healthier, less violent communities. We seek to educate and inform the public, and to encourage practices and policies that promote positive change in the production and use of mass media. Read More.
