Kids Helping Kids – One Film At A Time

Are you concerned what your kids watch - on TV, online, at the movies? Well, you're not alone. KIDS FIRST Film Critics watch and review all the latest media before it is released and give you their honest opinions and warnings about any unsavory content.


KIDS FIRST! Film Critics are a team of 65 youth, ages 9 to 21 from all across the country, plus UK and South America. They attend press screenings, press junkets, red carpet events and review the latest films in written and videotaped reviews. Their reviews, along with talent interviews are published on the KIDS FIRST! website, social media, YouTube Channel, weekly podcast plus are published by a group of 40+ publications – print and online.


These kids are real kids giving real opinions. They watch everything so you don't have to. Along with their honest thoughts about the films/shows they have reviewed they give warnings about any unsavory elements you might want to know about such as bloody gory violence, profanity, inappropriate sexual content or racism.

You can rely on them to give you enough information to make intelligent choices about what media you will allow your children to watch. They will never tell you not to watch it, but give you enough information to make your own decision and feel good about it. 


KIDS FIRST! has been a trusted source for parents and families for since 1991! As we celebrate our 30th anniversary, we ask for your support in whatever way possible. A cash donation is most welcome and is tax exempt to the extent allowed by law. We also look for volunteers to review films, to help us with social media marketing, and more.

Your support provides coaches, editors, technical personnel and equipment to assist our youth reporters, provide ongoing training, and help us reach an ever increasing audience of youth and families.


KIDS FIRST! is a project of the national 501(c)(3) Coalition for Quality Children's Media, a national, nonprofit (501-c-3) founded in 1991 whose mission is to teach children critical viewing skills and to increase the visibility and availability of quality children's media.
