I've been laying low for a few days, giving Did You Know? 2.0 the opportunity to get some traction. So far, so good, although I don't expect it to get as much attention as the first version did.

Anyway, on with the show. It's time for the third installment of my new Report of the Week (ROTW) feature. This week's report is from the Kaiser Family Foundation:

Here's a quote from the report:

Most parents aren't very happy with the amount of sex or violence in the media today. Two-thirds say they are very concerned about the amount of inappropriate media content children in this country are exposed to, and many believe media is a major contributor to young people's violent or sexual behaviors. In fact, a strong majority would support government regulations on the amount of such content during the early evening hours. . . . At the same time, the majority of parents see inappropriate media primarily as someone else's problem: only one in five (20%) say their own children are seeing "a lot" of inappropriate content. The proportion of parents who are "very" concerned about their own children's exposure to sex or violence on TV - while still high - has declined steadily over the past nine years.

I think the Kaiser Family Foundation has a number of great reports. If you haven't seen them, also check out their reports on media in the lives of 8–18 year-olds, how kids' media use helps parents cope, and how Internet filters affect the search for online health information.

Happy reading!
