The Media Family: Electronic Media in the Lives of Infants, Toddlers, Preschoolers, and Their Parents

According to a new survey from the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation, many parents believe electronic media provide educational benefits for their children, and more than 80 percent of young children spend almost two hours a day in front of television, video, and computer screens. The Media Family: Electronic Media in the Lives of Infants, Toddlers, Preschoolers, and Their Parents (35 pages, PDF) explores children's home media environment and the ways in which parents' attitudes affect their children's media habits.
