Updated with recent research, the book describes the effects of television viewing on young children's play, senses, thought, imagination, social skills, learning, and growth. The author argues that young children need protection from such a powerful medium. The process of how families have given up the "T.V. habit" is described, so that readers can take practical steps to build a more creative family life. Some questions asked in this book are: how does T.V. effect children's behavior?; what effects does T.V. have on attention spans, reading, and health?; how can the T.V. habit be broken?; and more.
