Television and Its Impact on Family Communication: A Literature Review for the Family Communication Educator.
Foster, Brent M.; Smith, Mark
Television is ubiquitous--it is seemingly everywhere at once. With its presence felt in nearly every United States household, how it may impact family interaction is worthy of scholarly study. This literature review spans nearly a half-century of television and family communication. The research suggests that television has negative, positive, and neutral effects on family communication, but no particular effect seems to dominate. (Contains 39 references.) (Author/RS)
