Positive media images have positive effects on kids

It doesn't take a genius to conclude that the images our children see can have profound effects on their subsequent perception of the world around them. That includes images in the media, advertising and at home. When most of us were children, there were not fifteen networks delivering cartoons and ads. We watched Sesame Street and Mister Rogers or nothing. Our "play" time was not spent on video games or on the computer, but outside in the fresh air. More and more research is being done that proves what we all know. For instance, Dr. Elizabeth Daniels work on "Positive Youth Development" which lists multiple projects that emphasize external influences on kids, especially with regards to the way athletes are represented. Let's work to change what our kids are exposed to on a daily basis. But make no mistake--it starts with you.
