AbstractYoung people today are growing up in a world unlike anything previous generations experienced. Today’s youth have greater access to more forms of communication than ever before. A recent survey found that 8- to 18-year-olds spend 6–8 hours/day exposed to some form of media (1). In addition to the traditional television (TV), music, magazines, and movies, new kinds of media such as interactive CD-ROMs, video games, E-mail, chat rooms, and Web sites provide everything from the latest scientific discoveries to surrogate friendships, virtual sex, and violence.
