ABSTRACT

This study examined the effects of extreme exposure to mass media caused by dyfunctional parenting style on young children's development. One hundred twenty normal young children under 50 months and 117 clinical young children were compared to their characteristics of watching mass media including first age, environmental factors when they were exposed to mass media. The results showed that clinical young children were exposed to mass media more than normal sample and watched more than 2 hours everyday from 6 months without mother's monitoring. Fourteen young children selected from clinical children who were exposed to mass media more than 4 hours everyday without monitoring and moderated after prohibiting their watching mass media. They showed more autistic features than normal children, experienced insecure attachment with their mothers and exhibited problems in poor social and language development, as well as poor emotional regulation. Their mothers experienced severe depression, high level of anxiety, immature parenting skill, marital conflict and conflict with husband's family. Also they were suffered from children's difficult temperament, social isolation, and physical illness.
