“TV parental guidelines are useful to a degree but they don’t cover everything and are not effective for violence.” When you consider the fact that kids today are consuming media in greater amounts and across so many more devices than ever before, the results of. Hence, the original TV Parental Guidelines were problematic for three primary reasons: they did not reflect the kind of television rating system that parents wanted, they were not likely to (and, in the case of violent content, they did not) clearly communicate the kind of content that programs contain, and they were likely to attract children to problematic content rather than repel them. The good news is that parents who utilize the v-chip or cable/satellite parental controls on these less monitored televisions maintain control even when they are not in the room. Many parents.

Parents should be especially careful about letting their younger children attend.

Rough or persistent violence is absent, sexually-oriented nudity is generally absent, some scenes of drug use may be seen, and one use of the harsher sexually derived words may be heard. The TV Parental Guidelines include two elements: an age-based rating that provides guidance about the age group for which a program is appropriate, and content descriptors indicating that a program may contain suggestive dialogue (D), coarse or crude language (L), sexual situations (S), or violence (V). TV-14 (Parents Strongly Cautioned) This program contains some material that many parents would find unsuitable for children under 14 years of age.

Parents are strongly urged to exercise greater care in monitoring this program and are cautioned against letting children under the age of 14 watch unattended. Parental guidance is recommended. Programs rated TV-PG may contain some material that parents or guardians may find inappropriate for younger children. Programs assigned a TV-PG rating may include some inappropriate language, very little sexual content, suggestive dialogue, and/or mild violence. TV-14.

All devices should be treated equal. It used to be that screen time meant TV time. But now that the average family has nearly two dozen screens under one roof, they must be treated the same. “Whether it’s playing with an app on an iPad, watching a movie on TV, or playing a computer game, they are equally engrossing to kids,” says Tahnk.

A Relationship Under Attack. Quick Facts on Parental Involvement: Children who have parental support are likely to have better health as adults. Students with involved parents tend to earn higher grades, have better social skills, and are more likely to graduate and go on to post-secondary education.

Also, some studies suggest that parents who are highly educated are more likely to set rules about television and to discuss TV with their children (e.g., Borzekowski & Robinson, 2007), whereas others find no relationship between parent education and such mediation efforts (e.g., Warren et al., 2002).

One argument is that it is the parent’s responsibility to monitor and regulate their children’s viewing behaviors.

Harmful content on the Internet creates new duties for parents, but their central role in protection is characteristic of the more highly regulated TV environment.

  • Hi Rashid, thank you for this amazing video and I really appreciate it that you are replying to every single comments below! Since I didn’t find a similar question in the comments, can you help me with this:

    My husband and I both are trying to apply for our parents. And we will be cosigner to each other’s app. We have enough income for family of 6. We have no kids.

    Should I put 2 as current family member number, and 2 as how many people I’m sponsoring? My reason is that I shouldn’t count my in-laws as people I’m sponsoring. Because people are not allowed to sponsor in-laws, they can only cosign for in-laws. Thus, the number I’m sponsoring should be 2. And my husband hasn’t started sponsoring his parents so my cosigner doesn’t have any undertaking that he’s responsible for. Thus, current family member should be 2.

    But isn’t this looking wrong when calculating our incomes? We should be calculating for family of 6, but the above answer in my interest to sponsor form is indicating that we only need income for family of 4.

    Thank you in advance!

  • Excellent Information. Great work Rashid.
