Making the Most of Television: Tips for Parents of Young Viewers = Aproveche al maximo la television: Ideas para padres de ninos jovenes.
With the help of parents, television can expand a child's world and be a springboard to reading. This brochure discusses things parents and caregivers can do to make television a partner in helping children grow and learn. It suggests: make a "TV plan"; getting involved while children watch television; using the VCR and videos; and turning TV time into thinking time. The brochure also includes six brief discussion starters and activities. It concludes that all this planning may sound time consuming, but once started, parents will be surprised at how quickly children pick up positive viewing habits. (RS)
