Children and Television; Main Findings from Shizuoka Survey (in 1967).
Takeshima, Y.; And Others
A survey was made in 1967 concerning children's viewing of television in Shizuoka, Japan. Although this survey was a follow-up to one made from 1957 through 1959, no comparisons are made between the two in this booklet. Third, fifth, and seventh graders, preschool children, and mothers of children in school were asked about: how they spent their time, including patterns of television viewing; their evaluation of the time they spent watching television; their program preferences; the amount of parental control over their children's viewing; the effect of this control on the children; and the parents' own attitude towards television viewing. The data collected is summarized and correlations between children's social adaptability, social maturity, and television viewing are discussed. The major findings are also presented in tabular form.
