Media has a huge impact on people of all ages, but especially on children. The amount of time children are spending in front of the television or on the internet is consistently on the rise. More time watching TV means children are spending less time engaged in physical activity. In addition, media of all forms are influencing the way children think, feel and behave. It is important to strive for media literacy for all children. They must learn to distinguish fact from opinion and fiction from reality. Things are not always what they seem, and students will be able to make healthier decisions if they go to reliable sources to have their questions answered.
