Children and Media Issues Conclusion
Today's youth have constant access to many different forms of media through television, cell phones, movies, music, video games, and the Internet. Media can enhance children's education, learning opportunities, curiosity, creativity, and communication. However, it can also teach negative life lessons; consume too much of children's time; and distract them from exercise, other physical play, and socialization. Parents can best guide their children's media choices by educating themselves about the forms modern media take (including the newest Internet formats for obtaining and consuming media and for communicating), by monitoring media youth consume, by reviewing media before releasing it to youth, by careful use of media blocking technologies to make it harder for youth to view inappropriate content, and by setting and enforcing clear rules and boundaries for balanced media use.
