The Role of the Media in Child Development

Parents and teachers are not the only important “teachers” of young children: the media plays a large role in the education and socialisation process. For example, many children in Jamaica spend several hours watching television every day, or listening to songs with highly sexually charged or violent messages on radio or television. There is need to both use and monitor television and other media to ensure the maximum benefit to children.
