Abstract Understanding parents` perceptions of their young children`s viewing behaviors and environments is critical to the development of effective television reduction interventions. To explore parents` attitudes, perceptions, and experiences regarding their children`s television viewing and the use of televisions in their children`s bedrooms, we conducted focus groups with 74 racial/ethnic minority parents of children aged birth to 5 years. We analyzed transcripts of the focus group discussions using immersion-crystallization. Over 50 % of parents reported

To effectively engage parents of young children, television reduction interventions should include messages that address parents` key concerns regarding their children`s viewing and should provide parents with alternative activities to keep children occupied.

There are those parents who would feel that their children should spend no time watching television while other see these as a vital thing for their children: important and unavoidable. To achieve the objectives of television reduction interventions, it is vital, therefore, to understand the perceptions of parents towar...
