Child Attributes as Determinants of Parental Television-Viewing Mediation: The Role of Child Giftedness.
Abelman, Robert; Pettey, Gary R.
Journal of Family Issues, v10 n2 p251-66 Jun 1989
Investigated intellectual giftedness in relation to parents' mediation of child's television-watching in a sample of 364 children and their parents. Findings suggest that intellectual giftedness and, to a lesser degree, quantity of television-watching influence parents' perceptions of possible effects of television on their children and the type of mediation strategies they employ.
