Raising MediaWise Kids
America's children now spend over 35 hours a week in front of a screen. These screens are more influential than most of us think. In this presentation, we will explore the impact of media in light of new information about child development. We will pay particular attention to the impact of media on the growing "culture of disrespect" and the "seven building blocks for academic success." We will explain why it is imperative to address the role of media in children's lives and, in addition, we will present concrete strategies for raising MediaWise Kids.
