The impact of media on family dynamics and social development of children is a multifaceted phenomenon that warrants attention from Home Science and Sociological perspectives. This study explores the influence of mass media on children up to the age of 14, focusing on entertainment, cognitive development, behavioral impacts, body image, commercial influences, and more. Through interviews and snowball sampling, data was collected to analyze the evolving media landscape and its implications for young audiences. Ethical considerations were paramount in ensuring participant well-being and confidentiality. The research underscores the importance of parental guidance in managing children’s media consumption to maximize positive outcomes and mitigate negative effects. It delves into the role of media in shaping societal norms, values, and behaviors, emphasizing the need for critical media literacy skills among children. By fostering open communication and setting appropriate limits, parents can empower children to make informed choices about media content.
