My ongoing project since my overseas study has been to promote the healthy use of screens for children; to advocate for quality media content for children and for the prevention of exploitative commercial practices.
This has involved ongoing reviews of research in the field; dissemination of reliable information to parents (including child-development-based reviews of media content) and to professionals and policymakers; advocacy to the government to defend children’s rights as media consumers.
Priority activities at present include raising community awareness of the influence of screens on children’s development; the protection of children’s privacy as screen users; the need for a research-based national classification system; and the loss of regulatory measures that promoted the production of quality Australian media for children.
