For many years now, studies rejecting the idea of a direct causal link between the media and children's behaviour and beliefs, have been generating insights into children's interactions with all kinds of media forms. This book is designed as an accessible introduction to these important research findings, for students of cultural and communication studies, psychology, and education; for professionals working with children and young people, and in the media industry; and for parents. 'Wired Up' comprises separate studies of a wide range of electronic media forms including television, video, computer games and the telephone, and includes coverage of a broad age-range, from pre-school children to adolescents and young adults. It provides insights into such diverse issues as the gendered nature of media consumption, the role of parental regulation and peer groups, and the significance of narrative, realism and morality.
