i wouldnt have thought the programmes themselves have much of an effect until about 5 or 6 at least.
Maybe the culture of sitting staring at a screen has an effect even at a young age.

it seems to be a mild version of "do violent films cause little american waterheads to shoot each other"
I think that covers it.

Indeed. As Neil Postman pointed out way back when, television is at it's most dangerous when it tries to be serious (he used news/political, educational and religious programmes to illustrate this). When it's larking about, we shrug it off. But when it tries to teach us, it lures us in to believing that it's actually serious.

I don't think TV affects many children, unless they are like maggie from the Simpsons (who beat up Homer). However, i do think the amount of TV watched affects children, and some adults too!

I saw some program last night on BBC, and this kid was watching 6 hours a day! Wtf?! I watch neighbours everyday, simply for comedy value, and maybe the Simpsons after that. If theres a decent footie match i will watch that, but i dont sit down and channel flick for something...

i think programs like tellytubbies and pokoyo teach children not to talk properley. if they are watchin this they are probably just learning how to talk and a lot of eh ho's instead of hellos will not help in the development
