Expertise

I will answer question on how to teach children to be media-wise so that they will want to choose the good and reject the bad. This will involve questions on: the cognitive development of children with respect to the mass media of entertainment; how the mass media of entertainment works; how the mass media of entertainment influences children at each stage of development; how to help children develop standards; why some standards work and some do not; and, what are the reasons to make wise decisions. I am not concerned with learning in school except as it relates to media wisdom, although I have had significant experience and training in that area.
