Tue, 27 Jun 2000 20:49:50 +1000 (EST)
The Annenberg Public Policy Center at the University of Pennsylvania
has recently released 2 reports on Children and the Media. One shows
parents, in the USA at least, are more concerned about children's
television use than any other medium, while the other, their The
Internet and the Family 2000, finds, among other things, 'the
majority of parents who have home web access look favourably upon the
Internet'. See http://appcpenn.org for more information, the studies
and news releases.
New Reports On Children And Media
Washington, DC. June 26, 2000
Family Internet subscriptions are outpacing newspaper subscriptions,
and almost half of all families with children ages 2-17 have a
television, a VCR, a computer, and a video game player in the home.
Still parents are more concerned about children's television use than
any other medium, according to a series of studies released today by
the Annenberg Public Policy Center of the University of Pennsylvania.
Despite this concern, Annenberg researchers found that parents are
not using the tools available to them to find educational television
for children or to limit content they deem inappropriate.
The three new studies, Media in the Home 2000, Is the Three-Hour Rule
Living Up to Its Potential? and Public Policy, Family Rules and
Children's Media Use in the Home, examine how families use media and
explore the implications of two major public policy initiatives
established to help parents better supervise their children's
television viewing: the Three-Hour Rule and the V-Chip ratings.

'Public Policy, Family Rules and Children's Media Use in the Home'.
