How should parents deal with Media messages?

Parents are the first line of mediation between their children and the messages they receive from the Media, and their social environment in general, as they grow up. Having accepted that the Media constitutes a source of information or influence, parents need to evaluate its messages and information with their children. By asking the right questions, parents can help their children express what they have heard, what they believe, what they think and feel, and how they evaluate the messages they have received. By having this sort of discussion with their children, parents can help change some of their children’s ideas and clarify the values the family holds dear.
