CMCH Synopsis: Media use is a huge concern for children and adolescents. Violence, obesity, substance abuse and sexual behavior are all pediatric health issues. Adolescents tend to turn to the media for guidance and information on health issues. Pediatricians need to be educated on ways to encourage parents and children to use media safely. They should make resources available to parents, check symptoms of risk behavior and act as role models for safe media use. Center on Media and Child Health
