Michelle Healy and Donna Gordon Blankinship both had separate articles hit the streets regarding the latest studies involving young children and TV. Television content DOES affect behavior. No DUH! Michelle Healy’s article was reprinted in the Reno Gazette Journal. I found Donna Blankinship’s article on-line when I googled to find the first one. Here are the two articles:
Michelle Healy’s: Study: Kids’ behavior improves with better TV content
Donna Gordon Blankinship’s: Study: Better TV Might Improve Children’s Behavior
Michelle Healy also mentions another (New Zealand) study in (I’m guessing) her original article for USAToday: USAToday. I found an abstract for it here: Childhood and Adolescent Television Viewing and Antisocial Behavior in Early Adulthood
