How children comprehend Television? Josephson (1995), states that children of different ages and age groups observe and comprehend television in different ways. This means that the way a ten-month-old child perceives TV content is not the same way that one who is twelve years does.
This is determined by the difference in their attention spans, how their minds process information, and the mental effort they exert in watching and understanding the programs, they are watching. Additionally, the experiences they have undergone in life also help them to differentiate reality from fantasy, thus asserting a greater influence on them or not.
