ha 2D HImONT (NebrJ GUIDE AND TH'BUN'E , March 2!, Tuesday For,, Parents Supervise TV Viewing, Encourage Tot lo Read By GARY ME VERS, Pa.D. Children nine to 12 years 'of age devote, on the average, 20 hour weekly to television. Those lrom 13 to 15 a little less. .At all levels, boys spend more time than girls viewing television. Parents average 20.5 hours per week; teachers, 11 .hours. He most popular television programs at nine to 12 are The Three Stooges. Bugs Bunny, and Rifle man; at 10 to 14 American Bandstand, Maverick, Dick Clark Show, Father Knows Best. Compared with the time given to television, relatively little time is spent on reading, about an hour a day at each grade level; ; no more time is spent in reading for pleasure as the child grows older. How amazing that a child should read no more at 15 then he read at nine! v Most books named by the chil dren "are fiction. Drama, essays and poetry were named less often. Stories of famous people were preferred in the nonaction group. Books of adventure, mystery and westerns were most popular with boys; books of romance with girls. , Less interest was revealed in hobbies Involving outdoor activities, and there was less frequent participation in fishing, playing marbles, hunting, hiking, flying kites an dpicmcing than had been reported in earliw studies. More frequently than in earlier studies, girls expressed preference at all grade levels for such occupations as teacher, nurse and secretary; boys chose engineering and science most often, . . Eighty five per cent of .th children in grades 7, 8, 9 said they were planning to enter col-lege. Even a. higher proportion of the parents said they wanted their children to go to college, C vmwp wwn urn IS AH these were the' findings of study reported by Dr. Paul Witty of Northwestern University before the American Association for the Advancement of Science at its meeting in New York City. '' The author makes some rec ommendations to the home and school: Study the child's interests. Sti mulate his interest in hobbies and creative participating fun. Provide good reading material in a home where all the family in the child. It seems to me that if we par ents are going to get the school child to read more for pleasure, we will have to begin long before he goes to school to limit the time lie now .views television and to supervise the kind of programs he may view; and that such limi tations and guidance will have to continue while he is going to school. Let's not fool ourselves that we can help books win out merely on the basis of temporary interest. Answering Parents Questions Q.
