The Media Awareness Network provides information about critical issues pertaining to children and youth and the media/internet. the Media Awareness Network provides information to parents and offers tips for talking to kids about the media, and advice on managing media use in the home. They offer suggestions about how school councils can promote parent education relative to the TV industry. MNet also provides educators with an overview of issues as well as teaching units and supporting materials designed for use in the classroom.
