Blogging as “The Movie Mom,” Ms. Minow will provide reviews, quizzes, tips and advice about which movies, DVDs, television programs and Internet sites are most appropriate for children of varying ages. Originally hosted by Yahoo!, “The Movie Mom” will now take up residence on Beliefnet’s entertainment channel and will be accessible from www.beliefnet.com.

Nell Minow, as “The Movie Mom” has been featured in The Chicago Sun-Times, USA Today, The Chicago Tribune, Parents, Family Fun and other publications. She has been profiled by The New York Times, The Economist, Forbes, The Chicago Tribune and Ladies Home Journal. Her book, The Movie Mom’s Guide to Family Movies, has helped parents from all over present their children with entertainment that is both safe and fun.
“Beliefnet is the best possible place for me because it allows me to write about movies and popular culture in the context of family, community, values and meaning, which is where it belongs,” says Nell Minow. “Movies are our modern-day myths, our sagas, our dreams made real. They reflect our history and culture back to us and reinforce and pass on—for better or worse—those values to our children. I am very happy to have a place to write about those issues and to enter into conversations with families to understand how these influences are transmitted and to help them respond.”
