Why TV is Good for Kids by Catherine Lumby
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Have you heard that one-third of today's Australian kids are classified as obese? Did you know that the real figure is 6% nationally? If you think that popular culture is making kids obese, promiscuous, lazy, violent, rude or slaves to instant gratification, you're not alone. Every time you open a newspaper, you'll find a journalist, commentator or politician attacking TV, the internet and video games for the terrible harm they're supposedly doing to our children. But what if everything they said was wrong? What if a book proved to you that TV is good for our kids? And that all the other panics about childhood and parenting are equally grounded in myth, not fact? 'Why TV is Good for Kids' tells the truth about contemporary family life. That beyond the outmoded idea of the nuclear family, there exists the messy realities of Gen X parenting.
