FamilyMint, the online money management application that helps kids appreciate money is excited to announce that they have been awarded the 2011 Parents' Choice Approved Seal. The Parents’ Choice Awards program is the nation’s oldest nonprofit program created to recognize quality children’s media.
According to the Parents’ Choice committee, winning products, “entertain and teach with flair, stimulate imagination and inspire creativity and help a child grow in many ways: socially, intellectually, emotionally, ethically, and physically.” The awards are determined by a panel of educators, scientists, artists, librarians, parents, and kids and they are designed to provide parents reliable, unbiased information about quality products.
“It’s an honor to receive such recognition from the Parents’ Choice Foundation,” says Bob Masterson, president of FamilyMint. “Our mission is to help kids appreciate money and allow parents to raise money-smart kids through our ongoing educational content.”
Parents’ Choice Foundation is the nation’s oldest nonprofit consumer guide to quality children’s media. Parents' Choice evaluates the entire scope of children's media, and every year recognizes the very best with its coveted Parents' Choice Awards. The Parents' Choice Approved Seals are given on the basis of the production, entertainment and human values they exemplify. A Parents' Choice Approved seal indicates a wholesome product that helps children enjoy developing physical, emotional, social or academic skills. Now, “FamilyMint” has been recognized and proudly carries their seal. http://www.parents-choice.org
