Protecting Childhood[Program 125]
Protecting Childhood

"When children look at violent imagery, they tend to see it much more as individual slides on a screen, rather than a coherent story and a whole, with an understanding of underlying motives, and cause and effect. The graphic images that they see impact them differently, and much more profoundly than they impact us. So that they may be scared for weeks, or months, or even years, some studies show, of things that they've seen, images that they've seen that are violent or scary."

--Nancy Carlsson-Paige, EdD
author of "Taking Back Childhood"

Lesley University education professor Nancy Carlsson-Paige, EdD, helps parents think through ways to safeguard their children from the harsh influences of our society. Based on her provocative book, "Taking Back Childhood: Helping Your Kids Thrive in a Fast-Paced, Media-Saturated, Violence-Filled World," Nancy discusses the importance for children of creative play, ample downtime and limited exposure to mass media. She explains why children can be overwhelmed and frightened by media imagery. Also considered are parental strategies that emphasize building a child's understanding rather than punishing children for misbehavior.
