Stunning Media Use for Kids
OK, I don’t consider myself naive when it comes to kids’ use of media. But even I was surprised by this study by the Kaiser Family Foundation about kids’ media use. Parents and youth workers should check out this study.
Some interesting highlights:
-Average media use is over 7.5 hours/day, which since kids are multi-media-tasking during those 7.5 hours is actually more like 11 hours.
-TV use is on the decline.
-Only 30% of kids say their parents set rules for their media use. But those whose parents do so end up watching less than half of the media of kids whose parents don’t set rules.
-2/3 of kids say the TV is on during meals at home and almost half say the TV is on “most of the time”.
Even I am stunned. Are you?
