So how do we improve and recognize the quality screen based media that our kids consume? Well, over 35 years ago Youth Media Alliance was formed to do just that for English and French speaking Canadian children. One way in which they achieve this is by identifying exceptional productions and presenting them with annual awards of excellence. Youth Media Alliance is also involved in research and training to assure that their viewers can depend upon quality content.

On November 17th (Toronto, Canada), I am honored to join Hedda Sharapan, Director of Early Childhood Initiatives at The Fred Rogers Company in delivering the keynote address at the 2011 Children, Youth & Media conference.  This two day event will feature leading experts who will discuss programming trends & provide insight into the interests and needs of our youth. Please join us for this important event.

You know how there are those days that you will never forget? This has definitely been one of them. The Parent Show premiered with everyone in their PJ’s drinking champagne at 10-12 midnight in New Orleans! I was overjoyed and pretty emotional about the positive feedback that we were receiving. We had great discussions about what parents want to hear about – everything from the Summer Slump (do our kids really regress for those 2 months off?), to how we made Super Why, to discipline with positive reinforcement to embracing all types of families. I was inspired and excited to be on this new quest.

This was my first blogger conference and the Mom 2.0 women are a warm and embracing bunch who go out of their way to support each other. I was proud to be learning from them and to be sharing all of our parenting stories, tips, and insights. I hope to be talking with these women for many years to come. Thank you to Matt Graham and Jeannine Harvey from PBS for believing in what I have to say and creating this amazing opportunity for all of us parents. Without them, this project would not have been possible. (and did I mention that they make it so much fun?!) My passion has always been kids and my new mission is parents…because really, we are our kids first teachers. 🙂

Today I’m on my way to the (sold out) Mom 2.0 in New Orleans to premiere my new project, The Parent Show with Angela Santomero (www.pbs.org/parents/theparentshow) ! I’m so excited to meet all of the wonderful people who attend the conference and to get feedback on what moms feel is important to talk about. Oh, and I can’t wait for people to hear our catchy theme song! I told you we should all have a theme song!

I just came back from the Women in Communications luncheon for the 2011 Matrix Awards.  I am more passionate and inspired than ever!  The caliber of women in the room:  Paula Kerger, Gwen Ifill, Sheryl Sandberg, Rosie O’Donnell, Idina Menzel, Linda Kaplan Thayer, Abbe Raven, Gina Sanders, Cindi Berger, Robin Koval, Dana Tyler, Evelyn Lauder, Arianna Huffington, the list goes on.

I was never more proud to be a woman and feel a refreshed enthusiasm for how I want to raise my girls.  These women have changed the world in their fields, and they did it with verve and passion and drive and perseverance.  Go Women!  🙂
