"The present study documents family media habits in six areas: electronic and print Media Use, parental Monitoring of childrenâ€™s media, parental Consistency regarding rules for childrenâ€™s media use, parentsâ€™ reports of observable Media Effects on their children, parentsâ€™ Knowledge about media and media effects, and how much children participate in Alternative Activities to electronic media. A random national sample of 527 parents of 2- to 17-year-olds were surveyed. Normative descriptive statistics in each of the six categories are provided. In general, familiesâ€™ scores in five of the six categories are positively correlated, indicating that families that practice positive media habits in one area tend to practice positive habits in other areas. Many family media habits predict childrenâ€™s school performance. Furthermore, having TVs in childrenâ€™s bedrooms is correlated with lower scores in all six areas, as well as with lower school performance. This study provides a normative baseline for future research."
