Television and Families: What Do Young Children Watch with Their Parents?
St. Peters, Michelle; And Others
Child Development, v62 n6 p1409-23 Dec 1991
A two-year study found that children generally watched children's television programs without parents and adult programs with parents. Children's and parents' coviewing of adult programs was predicted by parents' viewing habits. Coviewing declined with age. Parents who encouraged children's viewing, viewed television with their children more than nonencouraging parents. (BC)
