ESA works to help parents make sure that children are safe online and play video games their parents consider appropriate. Through the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB), ESA has voluntarily established numerous tools and policies to help parents make educated choices, and to encourage retailers to sell age-appropriate games to youth. The association also promotes parental controls included in many of today's game consoles. ESA is also a major supporter of the Web Wise Kids' Program, which is working to keep children safe in today's technology rich environment.
