This article discusses the exposure of children to the realities of the adult world through television. Children's favorite television programs do not include the news or documentaries. They watch them in a desultory way, but nevertheless they watch them; they are witnesses. Children spend a large amount of time watching television. What they see is not analyzed with parents nor looked at with particularly close attention. Nevertheless it is being observed. Television is the prime source of information about the world, more than parents or teachers. This is shown in the way that children talk about society. Their imagery of description is that of television.
