Family members need to manage media, making conscious decisions about how and when and what to tune in—and especially whether. And they should do it together. Media management is not just a discipline for parents to impose on their children. It is a strategy that parents, stepparents, grandparents, godparents, other caregivers and children can help each other with on a daily basis. —From the Introduction

The influence of mass media—television, the Internet, newspapers, advertisements—is everywhere. Understanding how and why media have so much influence in our culture and how to resist that influence when it opposes Christian values is a task every family must face. In Taming the Media Monster, Dan Andriacco offers some practical suggestions to help families become media literate. With guidelines for decreasing the quantity and increasing the quality of media exposure, this book examines both the positive and negative aspects of various media forms and offers specific tactics for dealing with each.

Navigating a sensible course between the extremes of uncritically consuming media and shunning it altogether, Taming the Media Monster can show you how to make a powerful ally out of this potential foe. By using the principles in this book, you can help transform your family from passive media consumers to mindful media connoisseurs.
