Five-Year-Olds' Fascination for Television: A Comparative Study.
Hake, Karin
Childhood: A Global Journal of Child Research, v8 n4 p423-41 Nov 2001
Compared 5-year-olds' understanding of and fascination with a public service and a commercial television program; also compared parents' and children's perspectives. Found that children were particularly fascinated by sequences containing conflicts and aggression. Sixteen of 20 children chose the commercial channel program. Parents showed insight into their child's choice; however, children appeared to create their own alternative television culture. (Author/KB)
