Abstract:

This study investigates media uses and preferences across two generations and across passive and interactive media (television and video games). Path analyses using data from 335 families show that hours of television viewing by the first generation (parents) positively predicts the amount of television and video game use by their children in the second generation. The analyses also show that children’s degree of television viewing is significantly related to the number of hours they spend playing video games. Furthermore, parents’ violent television preference positively predicts children’s preference for violent television content. Finally, children’s violent television preferences are positively correlated with their preferences for violent video games. These effects were found while controlling for SES, school achievement, and gender. These results suggest that the amount of time devoted to media use and preferences for violent media generalize across media modalities and are transmitted across generations.
