Abstract:

Children and Television addresses the question: Does TV influence children to become more aggressive or can it encourage good behavior? This completely revised second edition provides a comprehensive review of recent literature on television's effect on children. A chapter on children's health has been added to updated ones on anti-social and good behavior, consumer behavior, educational development and the role of parents and broadcasters in influencing children's viewing. This second edition also considers the new entertainment media, such as CD-ROMs and interactive video games, that are increasingly available to children of all ages. -- Publisher description.
