conducted by Dr. David Bickham, Staff Scientist at CMCH, and
Dr. Michael Rich, Director of CMCH, tried to determine
the relationship between television viewing and social interaction in young children.
The study results revealed that for children ages 6-12-years-old more time spent watching violent television
was related to less time engaged in other activities with friends. In addition,
more time spent coviewing television with friends was related to more time engaged in other activities with friends.
