Prime Time Kids: An Analysis of Children and Families on Television.
This report is the first in a series examining television's treatment of specific issues in women's lives. This report focuses on the way in which children and families are portrayed on television and how this relates to the reality of families' lives. In particular, the report examines family interactions, income level, race relations, and child care issues as portrayed by television. It is concluded that in spite of a superficial semblance of reality, many of today's television shows are removed from the real world. (PCB)
