Children's Media Foundation

Lydia Plowman was commissioned to conduct a review of some of the key research papers on media effects in recent years and translate the key findings into accessible, parent-friendly and balanced reporting.

The review was published on the CMF website in March 2014 as responses to six key questions that parents ask about their children’s use of digital media along with some general guidelines on how to read research in this contentious area. All of the open access resources are made available from the site for readers to make up their own minds.
