The Horror of Poverty Exposed in There Are No Children Here

- The Horror of Poverty Exposed in There Are No Children Here           When one thinks of poverty often the mental picture that comes to mind is of single parent welfare, dependent, women and unemployed, drug-addicted, alcoholic lackadaisical men.

Role of Children's Television in the Global Marketplace

- Abstract It was not long ago that there was wide agreement among broadcasters, scholars, educators and parents concerning the ultimate goal of children's television programming: to educate. Today, it would be difficult to find even two people to agree on such terms. Popular opinion would lead us to believe that broadcasters now seek to exploit the youngest members of their audience--turning them into life-long viewers (and consumers). Scholars and educators woefully condemn television for the "dumbing down" of America....   [tags: Media Children Kids]

Raising Children in a Faith Based Community

- "What should I do?", is the question many parents are asking when wondering if they should raise their kids in a faith-based community. Yes, you would think that it's a simple yes or no answer.
