Reading from my lecture book that may help with writing the paper:
According to a report from Common Sense Media (Common Sense, 2017), children under age 8 spend over two hours a day watching screens. While television accounts for almost an hour of that time, mobile devices account for an ever-increasing proportion up from five minutes a day in 2011 to 48 minutes a day in 2017. Levels are even higher for tweens and teens, who spend approximately two hours a day watching television and up to nine hours a day consuming screen-based media once their time on phones, tablets, and computers is added. This means for many hours a day, children are encountering messages about gender from these sources. Assignment: What was your favorite book, movie, television show, or other media item when you were a young child? Did it depict a diverse array of characters? How did it impact your gender socialization? What beneficial message did it convey? What harmful message did it convey? Did it help you form any ideas about what is expected or appropriate for each gender?
