Theoretical underpinnings of reducing the media’s negative effect on children: Person-centered, negative-evaluative mediation within a persuasion framework.

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review

Abstract

While the extant research in the field of parental mediation provides ample evidence that parent-child conversations influence children's reactions to the media, little research provides theoretical explanations for the ability of these conversations to benefit children. In response to this paucity of theory-based explanation, this chapter situates active mediation within a framework of individual-differences persuasion, develops the conceptualization of active mediation to reflect its persuasive purpose, and shows how such a persuasive framework for active mediation can elucidate the processes at work when parent-child conversations are aimed at thwarting the potentially negative influence of media exposure on children.
