Abstract

There is growing public concern that heavy media exposure is making our children morematerialistic and that this, in turn, has a negative impact on their psychological wellbeing. Partly because the terms involved are hard to define, hard to measure and hardto associate, there is a lack of empirical data to give substance to these concerns. This study – the first attempt to examine the empirical links between watching, wanting and wellbeing in UK children – has been conducted in the hopes that by providing some working definitions, reliable measurement tools and robust evidence it will help academics, policy-makers and everyone who works with children to gain an increased understanding of the issues.
