Young children and media
Having read the second reading I am even more uneasy with their findings. How many children make a research project? Well I have had 3 and have taught numerous under 5’s. I would like to draw the attention of researchers to the washing machine. At an early age the washing machine could be as satisfying to the young child as the tv. In fact my very difficult son who would never be put down would cope with the washing machine or moving traffic from out 2nd floor flat window rather than the tv. Until one son could identify a storyline he could not and would not cope, watch or relax with tv. As with the concept that young children should listen to piano music as it is a single melody line, sometimes the tv is too complex for very young children, with too much going on.
