Description

There is much controversy about the dangers of a free media when it comes to children and adolescents. Many believe that this constitutional right should be amended, altered, or revoked entirely to prevent the young from being negatively influenced. Graphic violence, sexual content, and the depiction of cigarette smoking have all come under fire as being unacceptable in media that is geared towards adolescents, from television and movies to magazines and advertising. This book presents a synthesis of all current knowledge about the developmental effects of a free media on adolescents. All findings are assessed within the context of normal adolescent development. Both legal restrictions and less formal regulatory bodies (schools, parent groups etc.) are reviewed to present a full picture of the ways in which a free media is constrained to protect adolescents' development.show more
