How children watch television is also related to their understanding of programmes and to their reactions to different features of programme areas; these are covered in more detail in the next chapter. THE CHILD’S ATTENTION TO THE SET As we observed in Chapter 1, children start to pay attention to television from very early on in their lives. A major bone of contention among researchers, however, has been whether children’s attention to the screen is mainly an ‘active’ or a ‘passive’ phenomenon.

17 Another important factor which seems likely to underlie the use of television as a means of escape is how well children get on with other children. Early WHY DO CHILDREN WATCH TV? 23 observations indicated that children who become addicted to television are found not only to have lower intelligence and come from poorer walks of life, but also to be shy and retiring, to have fewer friends, and to be ill-at-ease with others. 18 And what about children who choose to escape via televised violence?

Television’s dramatic characterisations and plots, for example, may convey lessons about how or how not to deal with other people, solve personal or family problems and disputes, make friends and influence people, and get on in life— professionally and personally. In other words, not only does learning from television consist of improving one’s knowledge of what is going on in the world —that is, political, economic, industrial and foreign affairs—but television is also a major source of social learning.
