NEW YORK — A new study by the nonprofit organization Families United for Children suggests some parents are looking for ways to make it easy for their children to watch movies in their homes.
The study found that parents who allow their children access to their own devices to watch television and video games are giving their children a better experience in the home.
“This is a way to let the child know what is going on, whether it is going to be safe, how it is being handled,” said Maryann St. Pierre, executive director of Families United.
She said that the study is an attempt to help parents understand what their children need to do to enjoy their favorite content.
Kids can find information on movies they can watch on the website of the National Film Board of Canada.
Family United has received nearly $1.4 million from the National Institutes of Health, a grant from the U.S. Department of Education and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
Its goal is to help families make the transition to home entertainment.
It’s a topic that has been a hot topic for a while, said Jennifer Cate, director of the nonprofit group’s education division.
We’ve been talking about it for years.
There is a lot of data to back it up,” she said.”
This study does just that.
It shows parents are giving themselves more control over the quality of their children’s entertainment.
“The research comes as parents are trying to figure out how to make their kids more comfortable with watching videos online.
Last year, the Pew Research Center reported that half of U.K. parents said they would prefer their kids to watch online video over watching TV or movies in person.
Parents who allow them access to a device such as a tablet or laptop are also allowing them to watch more than 90% of video games online, according to the Pew report.
