General Parenting Philosophy and Parental News Mediation: Designing a Qualitative Interview Process
AltmetricsView Usage Statistics
It is important to study how children interact with the news media and how their parents control these interactions. As the media landscape evolves and children’s access to news media becomes greater, the effects on children’s media literacy and development are called into question. The goal of this study was to create a qualitative interview process for analyzing how parenting style affects a parent’s decision to mediate news content with their children. The research question for this project is therefore: How do general parenting strategies effect parental mediation techniques and how do these techniques change to fit the topics of violence and multiculturalism?
