Itâ€™s not a pure coincidence that children are the biggest patrons of television and the worst affected victims as well. Therefore a careful use of media is essential for child development. More than the schools it is the fundamental duty of parents to control viewing habits and preferences. But in middle class homes where television is the biggest source of entertainment and collective viewing is a daily habit, it is the adult family members who need to be sensitized and regulated than the impressionable children. Dr. Sujata Mittal has forcefully set an agenda for parents and teachers in this highly readable book.
