Turn Off The TV!

Once again television is getting bad press over the negative effect that it can have on children. This blog has explored this topic before (see Children & The Media) but now a new report from the National Consumer Council argues that, among other things, too much television watching for 9-13 year olds can make them disruptive, disrespectful and greedy. The report also highlights stark differences between social groups in the amount of television exposure that children receive. Watching, Wanting & Wellbeing is now available online.
