The Plug-in Drug/Television, Children, and the Familyby Marie Winn
This classic study of television's impact on children has now been revised to include material on video games and computers, as well as a new chapter, "Television and the School." Unlike critics who focus on the content of programming for children, Marie Winn asks the crucial quuestion: How does the passive act of watching television affect the developing child's relationship to the real world?
Based on interviews with hundreds of families, teachers, and child specialists, The Plug-In Drug is a powerful challenge to parents and educators to reexamine their attitudes toward television.
