As observed, in today’s setting, television is considered the main source of entertainment especially to children.  In a world where time needs to be used productively, a parent must observe time efficiency to still guide the children in all their aspects of life. This paper aims to measure the extent of parental monitoring given by parents while their children watch television and the perceived effects on children’s behavior. In this light, to determine the said aspects, the researchers have made a questionnaire for the parents to find out the frequency, parenting style and the perceived behavior of the children in terms of action and language used.

Didactics and the Modern Robinsonadefor Young Adults – Edited Collection


The literary and historical influence of Daniel Defoe’s Robinson Crusoe on the Western literary canon cannot be overstated. Its publication heralded the arrival of the novel form and engendered greater public interest in reading literature in the eighteenth century. It was Rousseau who said of Robinson Crusoe that it is “the one book that teaches all that books can teach”. Indeed, in his treatise Emilius and Sophia: or, A New System of Education, Rousseau advocated for the use of Defoe’s novel as an instructional tool for the education of young minds, wanting Emilius to read only Defoe during his formative years.
