Television does not make its audiences in a natural way. There are social mediations in the formation of TV audiences. The most important mediations for children are those of the family and the school. For children, it is family and school. For the family, the figure of the mother is the principal axis, and communication between mother and son is the fundamental mediating function. For school, it is the teacher and the homework that are the most relevant; the child receives the direction of the teacher in the classroom, and devotes time to the school work at home. Education for perception is more and more necessary every day, the sheer amount of time children spend watching television is justification enough.
