Children, parents and television: A qualitative and quantitative study - The aim of the present study is concerned with the relation between children and television (TV) and with the effect that parents have on it in terms of education and control. Semi-structured interviews were constructed and separately administered to a group of children and to their mothers and fathers in the South of Italy. Specific variables, characterized by response categories at nominal level, were taken into consideration for the analyses. The data collected were organized in contingency tables and then analyzed by means of a log-linear approach. Results describe a rather complex and, to some extent, worrying reality: children watch a lot of TV; girls watch more TV than boys. All children Rivista di studi familiari, 1/2008 prefer cartoons, although boys and girls choose to watch different types of cartoons. More often than not children watch TV by themselves and their parents generally ignore the programs their children prefer and are unaware of the contents of those programs. Moreover, the study statistically demonstrates that an interaction exists between the amount of time parents devote to watching TV and the amount of time their children spend in front of it: the longer parents watch TV, the longer their children will. Key words: children, parents, television, interviews, log-linear models.
