American kids are raised on a steady diet of media messages that are, for the most, extremely hazardous to their healthy social and emotional well-being. In this podcast I talk with Diane E. Levin, Ph.D., author of So Sexy So Soon: The New Sexualization of Childhood, and What Parents Can Do to Protect Their Kids (with Jean Kilbourne) (Ballantine Books, 2009) and Beyond Remote-Controlled Childhood: Teaching Young Children in the Media Age (NAEYC 2013). Diane describes what happened when the deregulation of children’s television allowed multi-billion dollar industries, not parents themselves, determine what our kids will learn about gender roles, sex, and what’s “important” in life.
