Parents And Educators Concerned With Effect Of TV, Radio, Comics, Movies By DAVID TAYLOR MARKE (AT Education Writer) Parents and teachers are becoming more and more concerned about radio, TV, comics and the movies viewed and read by their children. According to Prof. Paul Witty, director of the psycho-educational clinic of Northwestern University, and Dr. Harry Bricker of Emory University's Atlanta area teacher education service, these forms of entertainment have come to be increasingly important to our children in recent years. Sometimes it seems to adults that youngsters leisure time is filled with little else. The authors of a little pamphlet, "Your f'hild and Radio, TV, Comics and Movies," published by Science Research Associates, Inc., of 57 W. Grand Aye., Chicago, 111., they point out that millions of children know comic characters better than they know our secretary of state or England's prime minister. Over 90 pw cent of children between eight and 13 years of age regularly read comic strips and comic books. Every Saturday, and often three or four times a week, 10 million children's eyes are glued to movie screens. Radio Background In addition, the average child in some communities spends two or more hours each day listening to the radio. Reading, studying, and other activities are often carried on with radio programs as background. It is known, too, that five and six-year-olds are among the heaviest televiewers . They often watch TV four or five hours day. Many children, ages seven to 17, spend an average of three hours day in front of television sets. Some watch video 27 hours a week --almost as must time s* they spend on their lessons. Haga,, Mrs. Ruby G. Paden, Mrs ; "What do all these facts mean," M J. S - K a t h e r i n e j i h e authors ask.

And it is a good idea, they say, for movie going not to become a habit. Since TV, radio and the comics are here to stay, says the authors, teachers can play a part, too, in helping children make better us of these as tools for helping children learn. First of all, say the authors, moderation is essential. Only you and your child can decide how much time he should have for listening to the radio or watching TV, or reading comics. Only you can decide how much excitement he can stand without ill effects. You may have to.ration or even ban some programs.
