The Role of Radio and TV in the Lives of Pre-School Children. Summary. No. 52-75/76.
This 2-part report investigates the role of mass media in the lives of pre-school Scandinavian children. The first part presents a portrait of one child, giving a personal picture of the child's family life and her relationships to various forms of media. Part II continues the discussion of the role of media in children's lives, based on the observations and impressions of interviewers and on information obtained from the families of 50 randomly selected children. Topics covered include the situation of children, their use of television, the general effects of TV on children, parental attitudes toward TV, and the effects of TV on different types of children. The roles of radio and other forms of media are also discussed. A final section considers the need for child/parent interaction during and after various media presentations to reinforce positive effects and alleviate negative effects on the child. (RAO)
