Since all children construct knowledge from the visual culture they are exposed to it is important to use examples from their culture. Using Disney movies or advertisements from global brands are good examples of visual culture that students are familiar with and can be used in classroom activities to learn about different cultures (Tavin & Anderson, 2003). However, Japanese visual culture like manga, television shows, and posts on twitter are also types of media that my students consume on a daily basis, so I feel they should be used as well. Examining and responding to visual culture from social media will be particularly helpful to develop a deeper understanding of cultural issues (Hung & Smith,

This study is deemed most relevant in the cultivation of values in children through a pervasively influential medium, the TV. In the communication field, foci and methods in research may be improved in the future. This study will be an addition to the few roster on the least explored aspect of cultivation, focusing on specific genre or program and selective exposure. This study will focus on the participation of television in the development of children. Moreover, studying children as the receiver has always been a challenging task because children have different ways of processing questions and answers.
In a society rife with gender stereotypes and biases, children regularly learn to adopt gender roles which are not always fair to both sexes. As children move through childhood and into adolescence, they are exposed to many factors which influence their attitudes and behaviours regarding gender roles. These attitudes and behaviours are generally learned first in the home and are then reinforced by the child‘s peers, school experience, and television viewing. However, the strongest influence on gender role development seems to occur within the family setting, with parents passing on, both overtly and covertly, their own beliefs about gender. This overview of the impact of parental influence on gender role development leads to the suggestion
Recently, early childhood education has become a prevalent public policy issue and federal lawmakers have started considering funding for preschool . Early childhood education often centers on learning through play. Research and philosophy of Jean Piaget highlights that play meets the physical, intellectual, language, emotional and social needs (PILES) of children. Children's natural inquisitiveness and imagination naturally suggest learning when unfettered. Thus, children learn more proficiently and gain more knowledge through activities like dramatic play, art, and social games .
In context of media’s effect on children, this theory plays a vital role in laying the framework for our understanding of this topic. This theory suggests that the human mind is likely to be influenced to learning from daily interaction with others and observation. As mentioned earlier about children’s constant interaction with the virtual world (Social Media) and Television, this exposure leads to children picking up many of their characteristic traits and develop further as they mature. The Negative effects of Television Televisions are a common staple in almost every household. The news and information being provided to varied audiences has increased drastically with the introduction of multiple news outlets and entertainment channels.
It plays vital role children acquiring knowledge about products, brands, advertising, pricing, decision making skills, attitude, shopping and parental influence. In other words, television plays a detrimental role in the consumer socialization of children by making them well informed and knowledgeable consumers to deal with tough and complex business interactions in the dynamic business environment. Though, there has been a lot of academic debate regarding the positive or harmful impact of television on the children, but it cannot be denied that the modern day children are very much “television literate”. (The term ‘television literacy’ has been coined by Shaffer (2005).) Children below the age of 8 or 9 will be unable to decipher and understand whatever they see in the television advertisement but they may remember and identify few things case by case.

Parent- child bonding would also be encourage during sessions this is to improve family communication and to allow parents to understand why children exhibits behavioural issues. It is also important to that during sessions parents discuss their thoughts that they see in their children to understand the importance of play in children and parents to be able to spend quality time with their children. In order for successful communication to be present within the family, one must be able to share information among family members, send and receive of knowledge and ideas to resolve
Studies show extensive viewing of television violence may cause children to become more aggressive and anxious. Children who watch many hours a week of violent TV may become inured to violence and begin to see the world as a scary and unsafe place (Amal, 2007). However, such an argument ignores the fact that the content of what children watch can play a crucial role here. Dr. Alison Parkes said: “Our work suggests that limiting the amount of time children spend in front of the TV is, in itself, unlikely to improve psychosocial adjustment. In future it will be important to look at the influence of what children watch on TV, and the role of parents watching with their child and discussing content with them, as well as how much children watch.” (Collins, 2013).
