Abstract     
"Television has become a ubiquitous presence with which children are
actively engaged to some degree for an average of 4 hours a day. This
level of involvement during nonschool hours has important implications
for a child's cognitive and social development. New trends in research are
based on the recognition of the significant complexity of the viewing
experience. Dozens of variables, and, more importantly, their interactions,
need to be studied systematically in order to further our understanding
of television's influence on children's development. This book's aim was
to bridge communication and psychological fields of inquiry to achieve the
most thorough and accurate picture of all of the variables involved. It
drew heavily on research literature from both areas in order to provide as
thorough and balanced a picture as possible of children's television view­
ing experience and its interaction with other developmental processes.

Which television information is actually processed by a child depends
on a complex interaction of factors that include the child's developmental
level, past experiences, motivation for viewing, and content and format
characteristics of the television programming. Previous views of children's
comprehension may have been significant underestimates, however; chil­
dren appear to understand the "basics" of television at an earlier age
than we had previously thought. At times their limited verbal skills may
prevent them from communicating their comprehension. At other times,
methodological problems may lead to inaccurate or inappropriate conclu­
sions."
