ARTICLES / RESEARCH: Parents want children to watch ‘quality’ TV: study (TAIWAN)
A study from the National Communications Commission (NCC) shows that while most parents in Taiwan would like their children to watch more news and educational TV programs, school-age children prefer watching television dramas featuring popular teen idols.
The nation's media regulator last year commissioned a research institute to examine the influence of TV programs and commercials on the behavior of children aged four to 12. The results, which were released earlier this month, showed that more than 60 percent of children aged 10 to 12 said TV influenced them more than anything else.
