TV and Children

Dear Devotees,

Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

I am writing a paper for distribution to my local devotee community on the effects of television viewing on children, especially those under five years. I have collected a large amount of scientific research about the effects of television on children's intellectual and social development, but I would also like to include some perspectives on how it impacts spiritual development.

You could help by letting me know, confidentially, what you think about this issue:

Do you think that television viewing affects children?

Does the effect depend on the type of program watched?

Do your children watch television?

Should adult devotees watch television?

Please share any experiences from your community. Is television-watching an issue?

This is not just for parents or even grhastas. Please share your perspectives, whoever you are.

Thank you,

Your servant,
Bhaktin Alex MacKenzie, UK
