Will New Study Linking Kids' Media Habits to Sex, Drugs & Obesity be Fast-tracked to the White House?

December 4, 2008 -

A study released by watchdog group Common Sense Media this week strongly correlates the amount of time children spend with media to poor school performance as well as negative health outcomes such as obesity, substance abuse and smoking.

Media and Child and Adolescent Health: A Systematic Review is, essentially, a survey of research on the topic conducted over the past 30 years. The study was carried out by researchers from the Yale University School of Medicine, National Institutes of Health, and California Pacific Medical Center.

From a political standpoint, it is interesting to note that lead researcher Ezekiel Emanuel of the NIH is the brother of President-elect Barack Obama's incoming White House chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel. Common Sense Media CEO and founder Jim Steyer (left) discussed the Obama connection with Time:

[Rahm Emanuel] will have a strong position in the incoming Administration. And I am optimistic that you'll see a renewed emphasis, from the White House on down, on media, technology and kids. In that sense, I'm very hopeful that Barack and Michelle Obama will be parents-in-chief and role models-in-chief for our country. Barack talked about it repeatedly through his campaign—turning off the TV, turning off the video games, doing your homework, talking with your kids.

Steyer also told Time that the study deliberately stayed away from issues of violence and media:

The research team decided that there was a voluminous amount of studies that focus solely on media and violence. So they wanted to stay away from that... This report doesn't say, nor would Common Sense ever suggest, that media is the cause of all society's ills, or the sole cause of childhood obesity or risky sexual behavior or smoking or alcohol use among teens. But it is a significant contributing factor...

The study's politicial potential is also emphasized in a press release on the Common Sense Media website which quotes former FCC chairman and CSM board member William Kennard:

The new administration has shown a commitment to children and has already made important statements about how it will focus new attention on technology and media. There is a unique opportunity to make real change in the role that media plays in our children’s lives.

Re: Will New Study Linking Kids' Media Habits to Sex, Drugs ...

 I wouldn’t blame the media for most of these problems but rather the parents and lack of education in schools. To change the media would mean to change many adult programs which would upset a lot of people, kids take the worst influences like drug abuse and violence from adult films and TV shows.

Re: Will New Study Linking Kids' Media Habits to Sex, Drugs &

Lets not forget about the educational benefits of video games and technology, not ZOMG technology is gonna kill us all.  If you raise your kid in a technology free bubble because you think its bad for them they simply won't be able to function in this world, you need technology to do well in school, college and then get a job later on in life.  You simply are not going to be hired at any job if you don't have basic computer skills.  I just read an article that stated that Ipod touch's will soon be used by medical residents in order to better serve patients.

Video games also help kids learn valuable skills like hand eye cordination and patience.  Not only that but when used correctly they can be used to bond with parents during a family game night.

Imagine having the only kid in school that doesn't play video games, I know I wouldn't want to be the weird kid in school, so parents please consider your child's feelings. 97% of American children play video games.  School is stressful enough for a kid, they don't need an extra stressor like this.  Not allowing your kid to play games will also create unecessary tension in the family since they will constantly be asking for video games but the parents will be constantly refusing which will lead to arguments and yup, more violence which is more likely to create a problem child then just letting them play a few video games. You don't want your kids to hate you.

But no one ever stops to think that a children's living environment is really the cause of all these problems, no we must scapegoat the blame to something else so we don't have to blame ourselves.

Re: Will New Study Linking Kids' Media Habits to Sex, Drugs &

This study says multiple times that it's not focusing on games and the internet nearly as much as television and music, because of a lack of credible studies. That being said, I don't like my music being attacked by hypocrits* that probably haven't ever listened to it.

One of my favorite artists (Angerfist) frequently talkes about abusing cocane and slaughtering people for money and pleasure. I don't support violence, and I have yet to try any illegal drugs. Also, I haven't drank more than a half a bottle of bear at one time, and I definatly haven't had any early sexual experiances. as for being over-weight, I have (reasonably) defined abs without flexing, which im going to assume means that im not obese. And then there are the preps that play basketball and rugby all week. once the weekend rolls around they go smoke weed, drink vodka, and screw around with all the other intoxicated socialites.

Also, did anybody else find it strange that the highest group for watching Television in a week was +3hrs? Mabye im wrong, but as far as i know the majority of people watch television for atleast 25 minutes a day.

*it seems a bit strange that a such a study would be done when the outcome is already known, and apparently goes against common sense.

Also, if media is creating these stupid, fat, drunk teenagers how on earth are they going to experience earlier sexual activity?

Re: Will New Study Linking Kids' Media Habits to Sex, Drugs &

by CSM's logic, I can't exist. Despite the media I've intaked when I was a minor, I've never touched illegal substances (I don't need to get wasted to have a good time), I'm only like 30 lbs. overweight, and despite the porn I've seen, even in my teen years, I'm a virgin. To say that media is a significant contributing factor to sex, drugs, and obesity is pure hogwash. Let's face it: Common Sense Media lacks common sense.

Re: Will New Study Linking Kids' Media Habits to Sex, Drugs &

I just noticed. They are blaming underage sex on video games?!?!?!?

Christ, I wish that that was true.

Re: Will New Study Linking Kids' Media Habits to Sex, Drugs &

I'm pretty sure that drug dealers cause drug use in kids. Improper Sexual Education leads to teens having more sex. Poor dieting causes obesity. Even if they are correct in saying that games influence said activities, (Which they aren't) Why do they keep trying to eliminate the variable? Think about it. Video games are occasionally responsible for cases of drug abuse in children. Drug dealers are ALWAYS responsible for cases of drug abuse in children.

That is an idea that works, even by their logic.

Re: Will New Study Linking Kids' Media Habits to Sex, Drugs &

There was another study that said the exact opposite of this, but gamers are more likely to be depressed and have other mood disorders. Mood disorders are linked to smoking and obesity. It could be something as simple as escapism or even that obese people are not interested in physical activity so they take up a hobby that has little physical activity associated with it.

Seriously, politicians should have to go through some kind of a statistics and research methods course.

Oh, and also kids smoke, do drugs, and have more sex REGARDLESS of whether they play video games or not. I'd bet dollars to donuts that adults who own a car have less sex and do less drugs. Does that mean cars cause impotence and good decisions? No, it means that maybe they have jobs to commute to and families.

Re: Will New Study Linking Kids' Media Habits to Sex, Drugs &

I game alot. I don't drink, do drugs or other risky behaviors. Yes, I do need to loose weight, like millions of other non-gamers. Not being fond of exercising would be the main reason I have not shed the weight. And it has been like this for years now.

Re: Will New Study Linking Kids' Media Habits to Sex, Drugs &

There are some cases where kids do things TV or games tell them to do, but it's not withen context of violent media or mature media, Infact, my first glass of wine was because I wanted to drink it because of my obessive tendencys to watch the Food Network. When you watch people talk about how amazing this wine is or how amazing this beer is, eventually you might want to try it. (By the way i'm never drinking wine agian unless the Alchoal is below like 5% I can't taste a thing except for alchoal, it was disgusting.)

With movies and media? Yes they can influence a person into a particular interest of something. I'm pretty sure my several years of playing first person shooters is influencing me to get a firearms license and possible know what it feels like to shoot a real gun, but especially with games such as GTA 4, no one is going to go out and jack cars, and shoot up thugs and look at Niko as some sort of example. "Hey, I wanna be this tragic person who came to america with no visa and he's forced to do crime and everyone around him dies, and he's always in a crappy situation!"

But you wanna know why some kids smoke and drink? Most of the time it's because their parents do, kids imiatate anything their parents do. Stop pointing the finger at the TV and Games and look at yourselves. Are you setting a good example for them?

Ahhh stopped reading there.

Re: Will New Study Linking Kids' Media Habits to Sex, Drugs &

Nah, the problem isn't that the dogs have taken a few too many hits on the nose. It's that they're being sent to find something, but the only thing they're actually doing is sniffing other dog's butts.

Re: Will New Study Linking Kids' Media Habits to Sex, Drugs &

This one time, I played one of those video games on a Nintendo 64. Now I weigh over 400ibs., go drinking every night and come home drunk, am addicted to heroin, coke, and meth, and I smoke 4 packs a day. And I'm only 16... 

All because of those damn video games.

Oh, wait. No I'm not.

Re: Will New Study Linking Kids' Media Habits to Sex, Drugs &

So wait, I decided to smoke for a little while over because of video games and not because Iwanted to try it out on my free will?  Wow.  Also, I started to get FAT at age nine (fuck politcally correct lanuage) because I overrated, not because of video games.

 

This is not even a theory at all.  This is just an ego trip.  I still can't believe we have idiots blaming video games even to this day where now, blaming video games make you a moron.

Now that President Obama is smoker, smoking is cool again. Yay for smoking.

 We aren't saying that its the only cause were just saying its the only cause dammit ... 

Pay attention to us we are important.

Re: Will New Study Linking Kids' Media Habits to Sex, Drugs &

Do video games cause these issues?  Or is it possible that those who are prone to be interested in video games are more likely to be predisposed to those issues?  Can you take identical twins, raise them in the same environment with the exception that one has video games, and determine if video games makes the one do things that the other does not do?  How come youth smoking is supposed to be decreasing at the same time that the market penetration of video games is increasing?

And how about a better definition of obesity?  According to our vanilla BMI system, I'm borderline overweight.  But I still have a slightly slender build.

He might have been called off by his new boss.

Maybe he said something like :" Do you really WANT to lose this job as well?

If not, you better stop posting crap like that on their site and act like a mature human being from now on.

From now on, i will keep an eye on that site and if i see you post more crap you will be looking for another job soon"

 

Tbh, thats what i would have told him if i were his boss.

Might have been around the time JT called SeanB at his home lol

Maybe he's calling a truce...he doesn't post on our site and we don't post on his......

''A study released by watchdog group Common Sense Media this week strongly correlates the amount of time children spend with media to poor school performance''

 

They needed a study to tell you that...? well DUH.

if i have say a 12 hour period,  in which i had homework i should to attend to, and i spent that 12 hours dpoing another activity instead, then of COURSE i wont have good school performance.  I cant make more time out of thin air, and have not used that time well.

I dont get their point.

If i spent that 12 hours eating food, i wouldnt have spent it on homework, and would have poor grades.

If i spent that 12 hours reading fiction, or horror novels, i wouldnt have spent it on homework, and would have poor grades.

If i spent that 12 hours watching tv, i wouldnt have spent it on homework, and would have poor grades.

If i spent that 12 hours listening to music i wouldnt have spent it on homework, and would have poor grades.

If i spent that 12 hours with my friends socialising i wouldnt have spent it on homework, and would have poor grades.

If i spent that 12 hours working to earn cash i wouldnt have spent it on homework, and would have poor grades.

 i dont see the purpose of doing '30 year research' to essentially state the obvious.

 

oh and as far as

"The research team decided that there was a voluminous amount of studies that focus solely on media and violence. So they wanted to stay away from that... This report doesn't say, nor would Common Sense ever suggest, that media is the cause of all society's ills, or the sole cause of childhood obesity or risky sexual behavior or smoking or alcohol use among teens. But it is a significant contributing factor..."

um you JUST SAID that the reasearchers didnt study that, and then say 'But it is a significant contributing factor...'. Um am i missing the bit where your opinion became more than that, and became fact backed up by evidence?

 

Re: Will New Study Linking Kids' Media Habits to Sex, Drugs &

Correlation does not equal causation.

 

Case in point:

As global warming has gone up, the number of pirates has gone down. Therefore, we must become pirates to stop global warming!

Brain: "Pinky, are you pondering what I'm pondering?" Pinky: "I think so, Brain, but we're already naked."

Re: Will New Study Linking Kids' Media Habits to Sex, Drugs &

Lets do the serious correlation for global warming.  CO2 emissions increase and Earth get warmer.

Now lets look at the real cause:
More sunspots than normal which means a warmer sun.  Earth's and Mars' polar caps are both melting at about the same rate.  Galileo did research back in his day, there were very few sunspots, and it ended up being too cold for years to keep a thriving crop, and people died.

Hummm...  trust real science, or stupid people who think humans are more powerful than they really are...

Re: Will New Study Linking Kids' Media Habits to Sex, Drugs &

as Ice cream sales increase each summer, more swimmers are attacked by sharks at the beach.

Therfore ice cream sales, cause shark attacks.

lol. just shows how you can NOT interchange Correlation and causation

Re: Will New Study Linking Kids' Media Habits to Sex, Drugs &

Actually, in NYC, as Ice Cream sales increase, so does crime.

No bullshit.

Re: Will New Study Linking Kids' Media Habits to Sex, Drugs &

There are studies that have shown that as ice cream sales increase, so does rape.

In the summer people go out more and therefore are subject to more opportunities to be victimized/commit crimes. It's been shown that if you take away to opportunity to commit crime, crime goes down (at least in that area... usually it just leads to relocation).

Re: Will New Study Linking Kids' Media Habits to Sex, Drugs &

 You can draw a conclusion from this article that states "media = risky sexual behaviour"  I would love to know why it didn't work this way when I was younger.  I personally believe "Play video games, you'll get laid!" is a better name for this study...

Re: Will New Study Linking Kids' Media Habits to Sex, Drugs &

I thought smoking was more strongly linked to peer pressure. Hanging out on corners with friends, going to underage drinking parties, etc etc.

nope, must be the media!

Re: Will New Study Linking Kids' Media Habits to Sex, Drugs &

If you actually read the report it's actually blatantly clueless.

For instance they call their study a "meta-analysis" when it is not.  A meta-analysis is a specific statistical procedure, but they don't actually conduct a meta-analysis as part of their review.

They also talk about "size of the effect" which would lead you to think they're going to mention effect sizes but they don't.  Instead they say things like "75% of studies found a statistically significant result", but that's pretty meaningless.  Statistical significance is increasingly recognized as a rather useless way of evaluating hypotheses.  Thus, this report really says very little of substance and merely engages in fearmongering.

Re: Will New Study Linking Kids' Media Habits to Sex, Drugs &

I'm glad someone read it, i was starting to worry it might have been done intelligently and have a shred of credibility, whew...

What are you talking about?  They would have went into more details with their comments if it was valid research.

Actually, I was slightly afraid of that too, but reading their statements proved how clueless they were to me.  Taking it at face value like that is bad though...  they could have been stupid and unable to communicate well, but were really good at research and found something...

How much do these idiots get paid to do research?  I really want to do some research like this, dig deep, and find the real answers, if we or they are wrong.  I am guessing they are, but I want to know the deep truth, but dont have the money to justify doing it for free.

I agree that just from the comments made it seemed bogus but what I was referring to was more that comment about the connection the lead researcher had in the White House. His bro could easily lend him alot of support and credibility making his words carry more weight than they deserve, but maybe i'm just being paranoid.

Re: Will New Study Linking Kids' Media Habits to Sex, Drugs &

To Article Title: Not if it is a valid study.

Out of all the gamers I know, there are not many that smoke and drink.  The non-gamers on the other hand, I don't know many that don't smoke or drink.  I game a lot, am 150lbs at 23yrs, smoke only a cigar for special occasions like weddings and new babies (like twice a year at most), and drink only on new years and MAYBE 2 other times during a normal year.  I have never done drugs, even pot, though I do believe it should be legalized.

Before I started gaming, I was above the average weight of a person, when I started gaming, I was around average within 10lbs, and now that I game less I am slightly underweight because I work too damn much and forget that I need food sometimes.

These people are all just detached coocs that dont really know what they are talking about, because they don't understand the form of media they are talking about.  They don't play games themselves, and if they do, it is most likely games that came with their computer, or other simple like games.

Yet another B.S. "study" by an agenda-pushing group of publicity seekers.

If Obama was smart, he'd ignore this "study" since all it does is promote censorship.

Re: Will New Study Linking Kids' Media Habits to Sex, Drugs &

And what is the correlation of these things they describe and being bullied, having emotional difficulties due to family issues, being a non-properly-educated idiot, etc? Hell, for all we know them doing bad at school is why they take refugee in media.

!!!

We have to blame schools for kids using media too much! Bad results at school cause this, they are to blame! BURN THEM ALL!!!

Re: Will New Study Linking Kids' Media Habits to Sex, Drugs &

Isn't the scientific method something like:  1.make general statement 2.find anything to support it 3.ignore everything else.   ??  Ya that sounds about right, lets go with that!

lol penn and teller did a great one.

 

 

scientific logic =  theory -> test -> if test passes prove theory, else new theory

their logic = theory -> scream "You cant prove what i say ISNT true!" so therfore it MUST be true!

 

Re: Will New Study Linking Kids' Media Habits to Sex, Drugs &

validate theory, not prove theory.

Science rarely proves anything, it more often disproves. See Newton's Laws of Motion. Repeatedly validated by experiment until Einstein showed they were wrong and came up with the conditions needed to disprove them.

 

Re: Will New Study Linking Kids' Media Habits to Sex, Drugs &

lol i totally meant validate!!  (oops my bad!) 

nothing is ever truly 'proven' its just the theory that best fits with our current understanding of the universe.

Re: Will New Study Linking Kids' Media Habits to Sex, Drugs &

so video games = obesity? whew, glad i found that out, i could have sworn it was all that food i was eating... 

funny though, i was only 175lbs when I was single and gaming most of my time and now that i'm married and have a career and play about 1/4th the amount I used to play i'm up to 230 :/   mainly cause my wife cooks gooooooood though, mmmmmmmmm
