9780140076981: The Plug-in Drug: Television, Children, and the Family; Revised Edition

Based on interviews with families, teachers and child specialists, this study examines television's impact on children. The book addresses the question - how does the passive act of watching television affect the developing child's relationship with the real world? This revised edition includes material on video games and computers, as well as a new chapter, "Television and the school". This work aims to help parents and educators re-examine their attitudes towards television and become aware of its dangers.
