Os pequeninos e os media nos EUA
- mais um relatório

Zero to Six: Electronic Media in the Lives of Infants, Toddlers and preschoolers - Assim se intitula o último Relatório acabado de editar pela Kaiser Family Foundation, dos EUA.
Um resumo deste estudo:
"Even the very youngest children in America are growing up immersed in media, spending hours a day watching TV and videos, using computers and playing video games, according to a new study
released today by the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation. Children six and under spend an average of two hours a day using screen media (1:58), about the same amount of time they spend playing outside (2:01), and well over the amount they spend reading or being read to (39 minutes).
New interactive digital media have become an integral part of children?s lives. Nearly half (48%) of children six and under have used a computer (31% of 0-3 year-olds and 70% of 4-6 year-olds). Just under a third (30%) have played video games (14% of 0-3 year olds and 50% of 4-6 year-olds). Even the youngest children ? those under two ? are widely exposed to electronic media. Forty-three percent of those under two watch TV every day, and 26% have a TV in their bedroom (the American Academy of Pediatrics ?urges parents to avoid television for children under 2 years old?). In any given day, two-thirds (68%) of children under two will use a screen media, for an average of just over two hours (2:05)."
