Television, Family, and Childhood: TV is Not a Babysitter

bambini-e-televisione

A review of Juan Camilo Díaz Bohórquez’s book: Televisión, familia e infancia, Universidad de La Sabana, Colombia, 2014.

It is essential however that parents realize how much television affects children’s behavior, and that they take an active role in selecting programs. There are both good and bad programs: the parent’s role is to choose. As this book demonstrates with abundant examples, using the television correctly has a considerable weight on a child’s education.
